House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan is cautious about the conflict in Israel. Sullivan believes that Iran could be involved in the whole story. He calls for caution! Iran has been stressing for several days that the situation in Palestine is not according to norms that must be respected.

After the attack by Hamas, people in the Gaza Strip were left without water, electricity and food. In such a chaotic situation, it is difficult to survive and live a life worthy of a human being. "We cannot rule out that Iran would somehow decide to engage directly.

We have to prepare for all possible contingencies," Sullivan said. Iran's Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian warned Israel that if they continue to do the same things, the consequences could be huge for them. Iran is obviously one of the few countries that stood in support of Palestine, and in the right way.

Many support Palestine, but it seems that they do so hypocritically. "If the attacks of the Zionist regime on the defenseless citizens and people of Gaza continue, no one can guarantee the control of the situation and the non-expansion of the conflict," Abdollahian said.

US warns Iran: It's a risk, and it's a risk we've been aware

Sullivan and other key U.S. policymakers are concerned that Iran might take action to support Palestine in the near future. However, the U.S. aims to be well-prepared for such situations.

Joe Biden has dispatched an aircraft carrier to the eastern Mediterranean, while the U.S. is also cautioning Iran about the potential consequences.
"It's a risk, and it's a risk we've been aware of from the beginning," says Sullivan.

"That's why the president reacted quickly and decisively to send an aircraft carrier to the eastern Mediterranean, to put planes in the Gulf, because he sent a very clear message to any country or any actor that would try to take advantage of this situation," Sullivan concludes.
