The Hamas attack against Israel from Lebanon involving 34 rockets as well as mortars was deliberate, calculated and fully coordinated with the entire Iranian Axis, including of course with the Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei. It is important that the international community understands that this was not ”merely” a Hamas attack against Israel from Lebanon but a deliberate act of war by the entire command structure of the Iranian Axis. Israeli deterrence has been severely eroded because of the domestic dispute over the judicial overhaul and the Iranian Axis now believes that Israel is on the verge of collapse and merely needs a coup de grâce in order to enter the oblivion of the dustbin of history. This assessment may seem delusional but that is how Israel’s enemies currently view Israel. When will the huge conflict known in Israel as the Northern War take place? It will happen because Tehran wants it and Israel has no choice but to win it. Israel cannot simply disregard 34 rockets from Lebanon and take it on the chin or else more is to come. The Iranian military is determined to conquer Haifa, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Beersheba. The die is cast, the Iranian Axis has attacked and in its own way declared war.
