US Strategy Collapsing, Says Israeli Officer
The head of the operation directorate in the IOF warns that the US withdrawal from Afghanistan is harmful to "Israel" and helpful for Iran, asserting that "Tel Aviv" is part of those dealing with the repercussions.
Aluf Israel Ziv, the former head of the IOF Operations Directorate, called the latest developments in Afganistan and the US withdrawal from it a "fascinating story," adding that it is dramatic and difficult. He asserted that the series of events depict "the collapse of the US strategy in the world."
In a radio interview, Ziv said this is the nature of the Afghan state, and "you cannot change reality. Not through military force, not for long."
"The US thinking of easing sanctions off Iran and allowing the Iranians to return to a normal economic system is a push toward the upcoming global failure," Aluf Ziv clarified. He also noted that "Israel" would be one of those facing the repercussions.
Responding to a question about the link between the developments in Afghanistan and Biden falling behind against Iran, Ziv said the question was on point. He indicated that falling behind against the Iranians is looming, and that the failure in Afghanistan has been a factual matter for a long time that has manifested just now.
Ziv stated that the main subject of interest was Iran, highlighting that "Israel" must exert great pressure on Iran. He added that the occupation withstood many losses that it is currently trying to fix through its security and military establishment, in addition to the Prime Minister's visit.
On Monday, Amos Yaldin, the former head of the IOF Military Intelligence Directorate, touched on the scenes of the US withdrawal from Afghanistan. He said the United States' withdrawal from Afghanistan, especially as it was depicted, was insulting.
"We do not count on the United States. We do not expect the US to solve our security issues, and not once did we ask them to spill a drop of blood for us. We said give us the means and give us aid; through security aid, give us political support in the United Nations and the Security Council," he added.
