- Preparations for War? Israel Closed Airspace on Border with Lebanon Following Trump Threats to Strike Iran
On September 16, Israeli authorities announced that they had closed airspace in the 6km-deep area on the contact line with Lebanon. The airspace will be closed until September 17 morning.
The announcement came following two days of warmongering by mainstream media and top US officials that were blaming Iran for a drone strike carried out by Yemen’s Houthis on Saudi oil infrastructure on September 14.
The US as well as Israel and Saudi Arabia blame Iran for the inability of the Saudi-led coalition to achieve a military victory in its war on Yemen. US President Donald Trump even threatened to carry out strikes on Iran in response to the supposed ‘Iranian agression’ against Saudi Arabia.
