- “Smoke Will Rise From Tel Aviv”: Iran Warns Israel Against Joining US Maritime Coalition
by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
The same day that Iran’s Foreign Ministry issued a formal statement warning that any Israeli involvement in the proposed US-led joint maritime coalition in the Gulf is a “clear threat” to Iran’s national security, a separate statement from a senior government official has threatened war would engulf Israel should it send boats into the Strait of Hormuz.
Senior Advisor to the Iranian Parliament, Speaker Hossein Amir Abdollahian, said Friday that “smoke will rise from Tel Aviv” should Israel joint the United States’ maritime patrol in the gulf.
#Iran has vital role in security of #HormuzStrait. Any US-led military coalition in the HS is repetition of #Iraq/#Afghanistan occupation & escalation of insecurity in region. If #Israel enters HS, it will be engulfed in wrath of the region & its smoke will rise from #TelAviv. pic.twitter.com/Tn7EdpBOXb
