Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) Chief of Staff Aviv Kohavi said in an interview published Monday that plans to attack Iran have been “greatly accelerated.”
The IDF chief told Israel’s Walla News that “a significant chunk of the boost to the defense budget, as was recently agreed, was intended for this purpose. It’s a very complicated job, with much more intelligence, much more operational capabilities, much more armaments. We’re working on all these things.”
Kohavi framed Israel’s attacks throughout the region as action against Iran. He said the IDF’s current objective is “minimizing Iranian presence in the Middle East, with an emphasis on Syria.” Israel is constantly bombing Syria. These airstrikes are rarely acknowledged by Israeli officials, but when they are, the Israelis claim they are attacking Iranian forces. But the bombings mainly target Syrian troops and members of Iraq’s Shia militias.
Kohavi also said the IDF is preparing for attacks on Iran’s nuclear program. Israel has a history of attacking Iranian nuclear facilities covertly, and Israel’s new Prime Minister Naftali Bennett recently said such attacks will continue.
Since Iran’s new President Ebrahim Raisi has taken office, Israeli officials have stepped up threats against Iran. The rhetoric is part of an overall strategy to pressure the Biden administration into not returning to the Iran nuclear deal.
During a recent meeting with Bennett, President Biden said if diplomacy with Iran failed, he was ready to “turn to other options,” which Iran took as a threat. Such close coordination with Israel on Iran leaves little hope that the Biden administration will return to the nuclear deal.

Do the “Right Thing” just not in the Zionist playbook.
Iran is an economic and extremely very weak nation ;with but one defensive tactic, make it too economical costly to attacker..
Iran has a huge amount of conventional weaponry but most ot its capabilities WW II..
IT CAN SEND LARGE NUMBERS OF CO VENTIONAL P9WER IN EW wRheds.
Yes,its people starve so that Iran may arm itself to the teeth.
I wish this were true.
For once Israel, please be telling the truth and you actually are about to attack Iran.
Then, Iran can do the whole world a favor and end Zionist delusions of grandeur.
Unfortunately, the US will “come to Israel’s defense”, even though it wil be Israel’s offense that starts it.
Correct. Drones, missiles, blockade, no-fly, all manner of h-ll. Israel will start the thing and then cry defense>
Stalin murdered 30,000,000 of his own citizens-this is but a tiny bit of the pain that Marxists have brought, but some folks are never satisfied.
If Israel and America attack Iran – for no good reason at all – this VietNam War veteran will be cheering for the “enemy”.
As will I !
I reiterate: Israel WILL start WWlll. Look to Russia and/or China to get involved on Iran’s behalf, especially considering Bye-den’s new Cold War. Iran will not take Israel’s aggression lightly; not with a population of 85 million.
Good news for the Amerikkkan industrial weapons complex.
Kiev and Taiwan are also bidding for the job. But, on an hopeful note, it may be the Afghanistan debacle has immunized the NATO street.
It’s almost laughable how clueless Israel seems in the present context. Public opinion is eager to ash-can Zionism right along with Islamic fundamentalism. And should Bennet & the Neocon establishment attempt it, they risk lighting a fuse of anti-Semitism that no amount of PC thought police can staunch.
Yes,Iran will waste the lives of its young men,and impoverish their already impoverished common people, and if they push their luck.get a taste of plutonium.
Does Iran have a right to defend itself? You say Plutonium, do not be so naive to think that if Israel ever uses a nuke it will be finished on all levels. Iran is not impoverished, do get away from the laughable propaganda called the US corporate media, it will do your brain some good.
Speak to the people who have relatives there,as to what conditions are. It is Iran who is the aggressor here.
So it is Israel threatening to destroy Iran, not the other way around?
Strange that they actually “Budget” their attacks on another country while receiving $Billions in tax dollars from Washington. Israel should be sanctioned at the UN and removed from the General Assembly for not adhering to resolutions and blatantly attacking neighboring countries.
Where was the UN Israel was invaded in 1948?Where was theUN during decades of Arab terrorism? Where was the UN when China gobbled up Tibet? Obscenities upon the UN.
These statements have at least three objectives.
1. Make all participants of this multi-party government co-responsible.
2. Make the Biden government a co-conspirator.
3. Attempts for responses from China and Russia.
This can get easily out of control. Just as it did in 1914. There will not be a world war but perhaps a lot of added uncertainty and stress in Central Asia. And mutual terrorist attacks.
Will this government of Israel succeed in producing a joint Iran, the Taliban, ISIS, and Al Qaeda? Will a new Mohammad arise? Apparently the era of economic-political-religious wars is not over. Yet.
This smells like Europe in the 16th and 17th centuries with Israel imitating the Hapsburg empire.
Don’t be so sure that the U.S. will be drawn in. The U.S. has waaay too many little pet states like Georgia or Tiwan that can’t defend themselves. Threats of a flash invasion, or total destruction of a well thought out list by 1 or 2 peer powers might divide any enthusiam in Washington to make any moves which would result in big losse(s) in the “Great Game.” After the Afghan debacle the U.S. doesn’t need to lose anymore prestigue. Or perhaps find itself in a damaging hot confrnotation on the wrong side of the law and international opinion. Biden isn’t necessarily all in for everything that Israel does. And of course, it was the U.lS. withdrawal that triggered this mess… by Trump to be considered.
Israel is taking advantage of a weak moment for Biden. If Israel wants to fight a fitting opponent, why doesn’t Israel head on down to Afghanistan and make war with them?
Barking dogs don’t bite. Either do it or don’t, but ffs quit yapping about it. You want to attack Iran, go for it and see what happens.
Most of the world agrees that the KKK doppelgänger being Israel should be smashed to pieces for its decades of terror, mass murder, and sickening taste for abusing woman and children enmass…Iran has nothing to worry about. Both Russia, and China will end the Israeli dream of more illegal conquering.
you see KKK under the bed.
