New Evidence Implicates Iran in Saudi Strike
UPDATE: CBS News reports that senior US officials have satellite imagery from inside Iran that shows the Iranian military preparing the drones and missiles that were used in the strike on two key Saudi oil facilities last Saturday.
Such evidence could be interpreted as an act of war by the Saudi Kingdom, and it is now reported that US President Trump is discussing options for retaliatory measures with the Saudi-led Arab Coalition, including cyber-attacks, air strikes against Iranian oil facilities, or even strikes against the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). Meanwhile, Iranian officials declared that they are "ready for war" with the US, citing several US bases that are within range of the regime's missile arsenal. Iran's increasingly aggressive posture towards Israel would suggest that attacks against the Jewish State will be a near-certainty in the event of open war against Iran in the region.
As US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo travels to Saudi Arabia today to discuss situation with the royal family face-to-face, the next 24-48 hours will be critical, not just for the region, but for the world. We implore our global partners to intercede for our leaders to make wise and well-informed decisions.
Shalom from Israel.
