US Biden Will Back Israel in War with Iran

In principle broadening the ugly war in the region to erase the American policy failure of past decades? Invasion of Iraq, the rise of the Islamic State (Sunni Islam of Saudi Arabia) and the massive failure of regime change in Syria, destroying Lebanon as we go.

US president and allied officials fear `significant' strike within days in retaliation for Israeli bombing of consular building in Damascus

Joe Biden has vowed that US commitment to defend Israel against Iran was "ironclad" as concerns rose in Washington that a "significant" Iranian strike could happen within days, in retaliation for the bombing of an Iranian consular building in Damascus.

US and allied officials fear that a strike is imminent and could come in the form of a direct missile launch from Iran, rather than an attack through a proxy like Hezbollah in Lebanon. Israel has vowed to respond in kind to such a direct strike, raising the prospect of a regional war, which US officials now believe is more likely than at any point since the Hamas terror act on 7 October.

Biden's pledge of support to Israel at the White House, intended as a deterrent, came a few hours after Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, repeated a threat to strike back against Israel over the Damascus bombing that killed 12 people, including Gen Mohammad Reza Zahedi, a senior figure in Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, and six other guard members.

"When they attacked our consulate area, it was like they attacked our territory," Khamenei said, in remarks broadcast by Iranian state TV. "The evil regime must be punished, and it will be punished."

Israel's foreign minister, Israel Katz, responded in a post on the X social media platform, vowing that: "If Iran attacks from its territory, Israel will respond and attack in Iran."

Israel has not formally taken responsibility for the 1 April bombing, but Israeli and US officials have made clear it carried out the strike.

Hossein Amirabdollahian reiterated Tehran's vows that it will respond to the attack, widely blamed on Israel, that appeared to signify an escalation of Israel's targeting of military officials from Iran, which supports militant groups fighting Israel in Gaza, and along its border with Lebanon.

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah in an address reiterated the Iran-backed group's support for a Tehran military response to the attack that killed Gen. Mohammad Reza Zahedi, a senior military official in the Iranian Revolutionary Guard's Quds Force, and worsened fears of the war spiraling into the rest of the Middle East.

Since the war in Gaza began six months ago, clashes have increased between Israel and Lebanon's Hezbollah. Hamas, which rules Gaza and attacked Israel on Oct. 7, is also backed by Iran, as well as an umbrella group of Iraqi militias targeting US military bases and positions in Syria and Iraq.

Though Israel has regularly conducted strikes targeting Iranian military officials and allies, Zahedi's death was the most significant blow for Tehran since a US drone targeted and killed Quds Force chief Gen. Qassim Soleimani in 2020 in Baghdad.

Israel's Attack on Iranian Consulate Will Be Avenged

Israel 'preparing' for challenges outside Gaza says Benjamin Netanyahu

The Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, said that Israel was 'preparing for scenarios of challenges in other arenas'. This comes amid concern that Iran is preparing to strike Israel in response for the killing of senior Iranian commanders.

During a visit to an airbase in southern Israel, Netanyahu told military personnel: 'We are preparing to meet the security needs of the state of Israel, both in defence and in attack'

 US may intervene to help Israel defend itself from Iranian attack, officials say
