- Media Outlet REVEALS in What Case Israel May Join a Possible US-Iran WAR
On Sunday, US President Donald Trump tweeted that “if Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end” of the Islamic Republic. Earlier, however, he reportedly told acting Defence Secretary Patrick Shanahan that he doesn’t want to see the US go to war with Iran as tensions between the two sides are on the rise.
Israel has announced that in the event of a full-blown armed conflict between Iran and the US, the Jewish state would not play an active role and would only join the hostilities if it was attacked by Iran or its proxies, the Israel Hayom media outlet reports.
Israel has repeatedly accused Tehran of maintaining a secret weapons programme and trying to establish a military foothold in Syria, right on Israel’s doorstep. Iran denies the allegations, insisting that it only has military advisers in Syria.
