One of the main topics in the world right now is Iran and Israel. After Iran conducted an attack on Israel, reactions followed worldwide. The greatest fear in the world is the escalation of the conflict between Palestine and Israel to include Iran, and potentially other countries. If things continue at this pace, there's also fear of a third world war. 

Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi delivered an interesting speech during the day of the Iranian Islamic Republic Army, which attracted immense attention. Raisi is aware that Iran is in an interesting situation where there's a high chance Israel will respond to the attacks from a few nights ago. 

However, the Iranian leader seems prepared for such responses from the Israelis, expecting his country to successfully defend itself and potentially retaliate. Raisi emphasized that defending the people and homeland is the primary concern. His intentions for the future continue to oppose terrorist groups. The Iranian president firmly believes in his army and its strength, fearing no one.

"The defense of the people, homeland, Islamic Revolution, and opposition to terrorist groups are the characteristics of our armed forces. People in the region are aware of the role of our armed forces," -Raisi said.

Raisi never doubted the strength of his military, believing his opponents lack such power. He focused on Israel, believing they don't possess as much power as they think. Raisi acknowledged that this operation was deliberate. It seems that the Israelis conducted thorough analyses and then retaliated appropriately. Although some doubted the Iranian response, the leader of this state confirmed Iranians' readiness to show their response.

"Israel's promise has failed, proving that their power is actually a spider's web. This operation was precise and calculated, serving as a warning to the entire world that Iran is on the scene and that our armed forces are ready."- he continued!

Raisi warns of potential consequences if Israel launches an attack on Iran.

He stated that the failure of the Zionist regime signifies an intelligence, security, and military failure, emphasizing that it is primarily a strategic failure. He pointed out that some countries that normalized relations with the Zionist regime are now facing humiliation in front of their own people, which represents a strategic failure for that regime. Raisi emphasized that Iran will respond decisively and harshly to any Israeli attack on their soil.

The Iranians have no intention of passively watching Israeli operations and attacks not only on Palestine but also on them. The Israeli attack on the Iranian consulate in Damascus has triggered a response from the Iranians. The greatest fear is that both sides will continue to retaliate against each other, which could lead to catastrophic consequences. World leaders are well aware of where such a situation could lead. If both sides remain stubborn, blindly believing in their decisions, nothing positive will come out of the relationship between Israel and Iran.

U.S. National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan about sanctions for Iran

That Israel has notable support is evident from the statement of the U.S. National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan. The U.S. has repeatedly expressed readiness and openness to assist Israel in the past, and this time they have the same intentions. Sullivan confirmed that the U.S. will impose a new package of sanctions against Iran, which includes its ballistic missile program, drones, the Revolutionary Guard, and the Iranian Ministry of Defense.

The U.S. aims to prevent Iran from carrying out further attacks or attempting to achieve its goals through other means. Sullivan is optimistic that allies will support Israel in the same manner. 

Additionally, it's important to note that Joe Biden, the U.S. President, and other key figures in the U.S. have urged Israel not to retaliate against Iran, aware of the potential consequences. However, it seems that Israelis are prepared to respond, unwilling to witness a repeat of Iran's attacks on their country. In the coming days, we hope to learn more with the expectation that these two countries will resolve the conflict and peacefully proceed into their future.

The only reason for optimism lies in the statements of Alon Pinkas, a former Israeli diplomat, who believes that there is a slim chance that Israel will retaliate with a direct attack on Iran. However, if Israelis opt for such action, he believes the targets will either be military assets or Iran's nuclear program. This is one of the reasons why Israeli politicians and military leadership will convene to assess the best course of action in the coming period. Nobody wants to make mistakes that could cost them dearly. One thing is certain: It's difficult to make a rational and correct decision in an atmosphere where one country is attacking another. Hopefully, politicians on both sides will show understanding and be ready for dialogue.
