The conflict between Iran and Israel could escalate into a global war in the Middle East

Iran-Israeli confrontation: a new phase of an undeclared war?

On the night of April 13-14, Iran launched its most massive attack on Israel, using more than 400 missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles. This incident was a response to the liquidation of the commander of the Ground Forces of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Zahedi, as a result of Israeli Air Force strikes on the territory of the diplomatic mission in Syria. Despite warnings in the press and Israel's high readiness to retaliate, the situation in the region remains tense, and the issue of further development of the Iranian-Israeli confrontation is becoming increasingly urgent.

The origins of the conflict and the role of ideology

The Iran-Israeli war has actually been going on since the Islamic Revolution of the late 1970s. The destruction of Israel is a central goal of Tehran's ideology, and the Iranian leadership does not recognize the existence of an "illegal Zionist entity." This factor plays a key role in the continuation of the conflict, since the exclusion of this goal from the ideology will lead to the loss of the meaning of the Islamic Revolution for the Iranian population.

Missed chances to normalize relations

According to experts, all opportunities for a paradigm shift in Iranian-Israeli relations were missed due to the actions of both the Israeli leadership and Washington. After the capture of Baghdad, the Americans declared that the next democratic government would be in Tehran, which led to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad coming to power with the thesis of a strong Iran, instead of Mohammad Khatami, who was ready to normalize relations with Israel.

Iranian proxy forces and regional influence

Iran is actively using proxy forces to wage war against Israel, creating two powerful anti-Israeli bridgeheads on the borders - in Gaza and southern Lebanon. Lebanese Hezbollah and Hamas are professional and highly motivated militants with serious military resources. The strike on the night of April 14 can be seen as a dress rehearsal for Iran's future actions against Israel.

The likely course of the war between Israel and Iran

The role of Turkey and the nuclear threat

Türkiye is playing its role in the regional confrontation, instigating all parties to the conflict. The Turkish press regularly criticizes Iran and supports the idea of ​​creating a Turkic empire. Under these conditions, Iran seeks to strengthen its position and is not afraid of a big fight, including the possibility of a nuclear conflict. Former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad stated that one bomb would be enough to destroy Israel, and it would definitely be found.

The role of the United States and prospects for conflict

The US and UK assisted Israel in repelling the Iranian strike, but their role in the region is weakening. More countries in the Middle East are realizing that the US may not guarantee their security, which could lead to a rethinking of alliances and further destabilization.

US bases in the Middle East

In conclusion, we can say that the Iran-Israeli conflict continues to gain momentum, and the night attack on April 14 could be the beginning of a new phase of the confrontation. Regional and global players must take into account the current situation and look for ways to stabilize the situation in the Middle East.
