Israeli occupation concerned over PM statements on Iran
Israeli media and officials comment and voice concerns about the statements made by Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett regarding Iran.
The past year was a turning point in the war against Iran, Israeli occupation Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said, and his comments received a lot of traction from Israeli media and Israeli officials, with the former reporting that the Israeli security and military apparatuses were not very keen on the statements.
"Such statements can increase their motivation to exact retribution," a senior Israeli security official told Yedioth Ahronoth. "Iran is planning for a retaliation operation, and there is no reason to further motivate it to carry it out."
Other sources say it would be better for "Tel Aviv" to remain silent during this period while simultaneously "making diplomatic efforts with the United States and the International Atomic Energy Agency."
Israeli media reported Monday about the latest message sent from Iranian leader Sayyed Ali Khamenei, in which he mentioned "revenge", noting that his words obliged the entire state apparatus in Iran to adhere to the implementation of this commitment, "and Israel is aware of that and does not underestimate the issue."
The Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) announced a little over two weeks ago that one of its officers, Sayyad Khodaei, was assassinated in front of his house in the Iranian capital, Tehran.
IRGC chief Brigadier General Hossein Salami said, following the assassination, that Tehran would undoubtedly exact retribution for the death of one of its own Martyr Hassan Sayyad Khodaei.
"All the Israeli operations that took place on Iranian soil will not stop Iran from moving in two pivotal areas: nuclear capabilities and armament, as well as the means of posing a threat on land," retired Israeli Major General Eitan Dangot told Israeli Channel 12.
