Israel Loads new Missiles on Modified F-35s, Can Now Strike Iran without Refueling!

According to Israeli media reports, Israel has entered a higher phase of readiness to strike at Iran’s nuclear facilities. This comes with the development of upgraded capabilities and intensive training.

The Israeli Air Force conducted four drills simulating an attack on Iran last month to test different elements of the strike plans.

At the same time, Israeli engineers achieved a major technological breakthrough, allowing F-35 aircraft to fly back and forth to Iran without refueling.

The stealth aircraft is expected to play a key role in a strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities, destroying air defenses and performing other vital tasks.

The Israeli Air Force has also developed a one-tonne heavy bomb that will be included in the arsenal of weapons used by F-35s (known to the IAF as “Adir”). This bomb can be carried inside the aircraft’s weapon interior without compromising its stealth signature on enemy radar.

The bomb is made by Rafael Advanced Weapons Systems and is said to be autonomous and can be protected from interference and cyber warfare systems. The bomb was recently used in a series of IAF tests, the results of which were presented to Secretary of Defense Benny Gantz.

In 2019, Lockheed Martin was considering adding two 600-gallon outer fuel tanks under the F-35’s wings as part of a larger range expansion study. This would have a significant effect on stealth characteristics but would increase the total fuel capacity by about 40 percent. Prior to that, studies had examined the addition of smaller tanks of 480 and 460 gallons. It seems that this problem has now been solved.

Earlier, a senior official revealed that Israel had significantly increased the list of possible targets for an attack inside Iran.

The 4 Scenarios of the large scale Israeli Exercises

The IAF has conducted four large-scale exercises to simulate attacks on Iran in the past month.

The first exercise involved dealing with Iranian radar and tracking and early warning systems, such as those protecting its nuclear facilities.


The second involved the simulation of long-range combat flights. In this case it was achieved with destinations in Europe.


The other exercises included defensive measures against Iranian cyber attacks and electronic warfare systems, which could be used by Iran to undermine an Israeli military operation.


In another exercise, the Israelis simulated strike operations against numerous targets, in short periods of time and at a distance of 1,100 miles. Advanced weapons were used to accurately attack F-15 and F-35 aircraft. In particular, the IDF for the needs of the exercise took off almost 100 fighter jets from Israeli bases.


The Israeli Air Force has also been training rescuers who flee militarily away from the state border – including being forced to land in the middle of the sea.


The Israeli Air Force has reportedly been able to integrate full co-operation between fifth-generation and fourth- and fourth-generation aircraft into the exercise, allowing for real-time division of tasks, information transfer and other classified missions, they said. security officials.

“Iran’s radar sites and anti-aircraft missiles are crowded and numerous – but they are not the only challenge. They must attack goals with content and meaning. The attack should be able to cause enormous damage without expanding. “There are several targets in Iran, in different ranges.”

“Israel’s strategy has changed – We will hit the ‘head” “

The news of progress in Israel’s military readiness came just a day after Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett told the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee that the strategy for Iran had changed over the past year. The Armed Forces “will strike the head… and not only in the arms transfers as we have had in recent years”.

During recent military maneuvers, the IAF has also opened cooperation between fifth-generation fighter jets such as the F-35 and fourth-generation aircraft such as Israel’s older F15 and F-16 models. The planes practiced the exchange of information, missions and much more.

“Iran’s missile systems and surface-to-air radars are full and are not the only challenge, ” a defense official said. “ We must be able to attack targets that are important and the attack must be able to cause extensive damage. “There are many targets in Iran of different ranges.”

Iran: Removed 27 IAEA cameras from nuclear facilities

Iran has informed the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) of the “removal of 27 cameras” to monitor its nuclear activities , responding to a decision critical of Tehran, the agency said.

The measure “naturally poses a serious obstacle to our ability to continue working there, ” IAEA Director-General Rafael Grossi told a news conference in Vienna.

The IAEA, which oversees Tehran’s nuclear activities to ensure that Iran’s nuclear program is peaceful, can continue inspections and has other tools, but Tehran’s decision means “less transparency, more doubt.” Rafael Grossi explained.

” Does that mean we have reached the end of the road?” I hope not. “We hope that the spirits will ease a little and we will be able to focus again on the problems to be solved,” he added, calling on Iran to resume dialogue.

If the engagement persists after three or four weeks, “the IAEA will no longer be able to provide the information it needs to develop Iran’s nuclear program,” Grossi warned.

This “will deal a fatal blow” to the 2015 international agreement, which provides for the curtailment of Tehran’s nuclear activities in exchange for easing the regime of international sanctions against Iran.

Israel decides on ground operation: “Strategic strike” missiles in the hands of Hezbollah from Russia & Iran!

Israel has decided to go to the front and to a new war with Hezbollah. Israeli media have published a “missile terror list” revealing that Iran and Russia have equipped Hezbollah with a huge stockpile of strategic missiles.

The list – if true – is simply shocking and raises reasonable questions as to how all these weapons were transferred to Hezbollah without Israel realizing it. 

It comes at a time when there is a lot of information about an impending Israeli ground attack on Lebanon with preparations already underway.

Targets have been set and an Israeli simulation against Hezbollah and the Iranian axis in Syria is underway.

Israeli media: They are planning a naval blockade in Israel

Israeli media report that ” Iran has equipped Hezbollah forces with cruise missiles, including the Kh-55, which is potentially capable of carrying a nuclear warhead.

The purpose of the Iranians is the naval blockade of Israel.

This missile has a range of 2,500 km. This report came from Western sources on Monday, May 16, when the Israeli Navy participated in the large-scale exercise “Chariots of Fire” “, Israeli media emphasize.

The Kh-55 was developed by the Soviet Union in the 1970s as an air-launched cruise missile capable of carrying a thermonuclear warhead at a distance of 2.5-3 thousand kilometers. Based on the Iranian conversions, it can be launched from a land platform or from a warship.

“Hezbollah’s missile list is large”

The Israelis go on to say that “Hezbollah is creating a stockpile of cruise missiles capable of posing a significant threat to the Israeli Navy. Hezbollah’s goal is to impose a naval blockade on Israel during a war.

Even a partial embargo would seriously undermine Israel’s ability to conduct wartime operations and intervene in its military and political supply routes.

The anti-ship and ballistic missiles that are now in the hands of Hezbollah, according to Western sources, are:

  • C-802, the Iranian version of the Chinese 200 km cruise missile, which has a range of 200 km.
  • Kh-55 which was reported.
  • The Russian Yakhont cruise missile, which has a range of 300 km and was delivered to Hezbollah from Syria with the consent of Moscow.
  • The Ghadr-110, a 2,000 km ballistic missile.
  • Ghadir, a cruise missile that has a range of 300 km. This is the missile that was reported a few days ago by WarNews247.

War with Hezbollah

The Israeli army expects the 162nd Armored Division to be ready for battle along the northern border, as well as for a confrontation with Hezbollah.

In contrast to the fighting in the Gaza Strip, which relies heavily on air strikes, a war in Lebanon will necessitate ground operations, according to Israeli estimates.

The Israeli Foreign Minister, B. Gantz, warned that the list of Israel’s targets for Lebanon is “larger and more important than the one for Gaza.”

During the “Chariots of Fire” exercise, which is scheduled to last until June 3, Israeli troops will be trained to respond to surprise events in several theaters simultaneously, focusing on the defense of the northern border.

The Israeli Armed Forces are conducting massive attacks on strategic infrastructure in Lebanon used by Hezbollah for military purposes, including power and electricity installations and roads.

Benny Gantz Warning: Just a Few Weeks Ago

Israeli Defense Minister Benny Ganj warned that “the price of meeting the Iranian challenge at the global or regional level is higher than a year ago and lower than it will be in a year.”

He also warned that Iran was “just a few weeks away” from accumulating enough fissile material for a nuclear bomb.

He stressed that Iran is working to complete the production and installation of 1,000 advanced uranium enrichment centrifuges, including a new underground site at the Natanz nuclear plant.

“Iran continues to accumulate irreversible knowledge and experience in the development, research, production and operation of advanced centrifuges, ” Gantz told a conference at Reichman University in Herzliya.

“These days, Iran is working to complete the production and installation of 1,000 advanced IR6 centrifuges at its nuclear facilities, including a new basement facility near Natanz .

“It is only a few weeks away from the accumulation of fissile material that will be enough for a first bomb, it holds 60 kg of enriched material at 60%, it produces metallic uranium at an enrichment level of 20% and prevents IAEA access to its facilities,” he added.

Last month, the head of the UN nuclear watchdog confirmed that Iran had set up a new centrifugal laboratory at the Natanz nuclear facility.

The director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Rafael Grossi, said the machines had been moved from Karaj near Tehran to the new site, which he said was about three floors below ground, to protect against airstrikes.

Russia Fires S300 Anti-Aircraft Missiles at Israeli Jets Over Syria

The IDF said the incident was “unprecedented” and they are now wondering if this was a one time deal or if this is a permanent policy change by Russia.

The S-300s, like the S-400s, have been in Syria for a long time but have never been used against Israeli fighters thanks to the Israel-Russia agreement.

The Israelis stress that Syria’s S-300s are controlled solely by the Russian military and that they can not activate or launch missiles without their approval.

These are systems that were transferred from Hmeimim air base in February 2018. Keep in mind Russia has threatened to shoot down Israeli jets at the end of April. Russia said that “Israel is a threat to regional security” and they were also upset that former Israeli special forces troops and weapons were going to Ukraine to assist in the fight against Russia.

I spoke about that story on the website in a different video where I also included some of the ancient history between Israel and Ukraine in particular. You can watch that video by CLICKING HERE.

More analytically, Israeli media report that the Russian air defense responded to the Israeli attack on Friday, launching “several anti-aircraft missiles”.

“Amid rising tensions between Israel and Russia over the war in Ukraine, Russian S-300s fired for the first time at Israeli fighter jets during an Israeli airstrike last Friday (May 13th),” Israel’s Channel 13 reported on Monday.

“After hundreds of Israeli airstrikes against targets in Syria, a Russian Army air defense artillery responded on Friday to a wave of Israeli Air Force aircraft attacking targets in the western part of the country.”

Where did the incident happen
According to the report, the incident took place on Friday night, when the Israeli Air Force bombed several targets near the city of Masyaf in northwestern Syria.

The Russian Defense Ministry’s Center for Reconciliation in Syria said Israeli F-16s fired 22 missiles at a “Syrian scientific research center” in the western Syrian city of Masyaf and in the port of Baniyas on May 13.

In addition to the bombing of Iranian arms shipments for fighters in Syria and Lebanon, as well as Iranian-backed weapons factories and depots in Syria, Israeli strikes in Syria last week were intended to destroy entrances to underground facilities, he said. the Jerusalem Post.

However, this time the S-300s also opened fire as the fighters were leaving the area.

The Masyaf area is considered a base for Iranian forces and pro-Iranian militias and has been repeatedly targeted in recent years in attacks attributed to Israel. Source

Israel Preparing to Strike Iranian Targets, and Look Who is Rehearsing with Them!

Israel recently set aside 1.5 billion dollars to pay for an attack on Iran and its nuclear facilities thereby igniting at least a large regional war and potentially WW3! Iran has predictably said it would retaliate against Israel in kind so yes there is a lot of potential for a huge war that would suck in the other nations now training with Israel in the desert. Here is some info I just received in my email about this story and a video from WION, an Indian news agency. First up is the video describing Israel’s intentions.

Now here is a story on the nations training with Israel in the desert in an exercise called “Blue Flag”. Below is what I received in an email from a subscriber detailing this issue and the potential Biblical significance.

The ongoing BLUE FLAG exercise running out of Israel’s Negev is the largest and features the most advanced technology than ever before.
Here’s the JPOST report:


“Jerusalem Post Israel News”
Air Force Drill ‘Blue Flag’ 2021 enters second week


By ANNA AHRONHEIM
OCTOBER 25, 2021 18:23Israel Air Force drills with foreign forces in the “Blue Drill” exercise in October 2021.
Israel Air Force drills with foreign forces in the “Blue Drill” exercise in October 2021.
Thousands of foreign troops and dozens of foreign jets are taking part in Israel’s most advanced aerial drill, which is entering it second week.


The fifth bi-annual Blue Flag exercise entered its second week, with thousands of troops and dozens of aircraft from around the world taking part in the most advanced aerial drill ever held in the Jewish state.An estimated 1,500 technical and administrative personnel from different air forces are taking part in the drill at the Ovda Air Force base in the Negev north of Eilat.


Along with the dozens of Israeli aircraft taking part, some 40 aircraft from Germany (six Eurofighters), Italy (five F-35 jets and five G550 planes), Britain (six Eurofighters), France (four Raphael jets), India (five Mirage jets), Greece (four F-16 jets), and the US (six F-16 CJ jets) are taking part.”

Johnny’s Commentary

Hmm. The line up of nations participating sure is interesting. We have Germany, Italy, Britain, France, India, Greece and the USA. All training together in the Israeli Desert while Israel OPENLY prepares to attack Iran! Something is up in the Middle East! Prayed up and prepped up!

Iran Says “War with Israel has Already Begun” as new covert strikes take place in Iran

More attacks against more alleged secret Iranian nuclear facilities by Israel have just occurred again and Iran is planning a retaliatory strike! From Zerohedge;

Amid a recent spate of covert espionage attacks on Iranian infrastructure – some publicly known and more that are possibly unknown – Iran’s foreign ministry has declared that “war with Israel has already begun”.

A foreign ministry spokesmen told the major Israeli national Hebrew-language daily newspaper Maariv that “Israel has carried out attacks that were intended to destroy our nuclear program for peaceful purposes.” Saeed Khatibzadeh declared “the war with Israel has already begun” – in an ominous message intended as a warning to the Israeli public and leadership. 

The spokesman added that Israel “has murdered nuclear scientists and harmed the Iranian people. Iran is blamed for terrorism, but there is no good or bad terrorist. The entire crisis in the region is the fault of Israel.”

Rare or unlikely as it is for a top Iranian official to speak to Israeli publication, it’s the closest Tehran has come in years to direct communication with Israeli entities. It’s a sign that the two countries are truly on the brink of direct conflict. 

“Israel severely harmed our civilian and research system,” he described. “They speak about the Iranian nuclear threat, but Israel has hundreds of bombs, and it never signed the non-proliferation treaty for nuclear weapons.”

Then we have more evidence of a stealth attack from Israel on Iranian facilities that caused a lot of damage. From Hal Turner:

Israel reportedly sent military aircraft over Azerbaijan and out into the Caspian Sea to launch at least one large missile against what is alleged to be a “secret” nuclear facility in Iran, near the capital, Tehran.

before and after

Intelligence intercepts confirm the attack took place and that the internal agencies in Iran are directly blaming Israel. 

Complicating matters is that the facility is allegedly protected by short, medium and long range Iranian missile defenses, which apparently did not see the incoming attack.  

Intelligence intercepts also confirm that retaliation against the territory of Israel IS BEING PLANNED in Iran.  Whether there will be political approval to launch such retaliation remains to be seen.

Iran Has Nuclear Weapons, Flashback 1992

Can we please end this RIDICULOUS argument that the US and Israel need to attack Iran to prevent them from acquiring nuclear weapons? The “nuclear deals” with Iran have been nothing more than a major distraction and a scapegoat to keep the world on the edge of war. There are other reasons but my point here is that Iran has nuclear weapons and yet the world continues to pretend that it doesn’t and that we must go to war with Iran to prevent it. That is the mainstream narrative. Too bad the mainstream reported the truth back in 1992. Here is the L.A. Times article from 1992 describing how the deal went down.

Iran-Kazakhstan Nuclear Deal Reported

L.A. TIMES ARCHIVESMAY 1, 1992 12 AM PTFROM ASSOCIATED PRESSLONDON — 

Iran has obtained at least two nuclear warheads that had been reported missing from Kazakhstan, The European newspaper said Thursday.

The article, which cites a secret report from the Russian Foreign Intelligence Agency, again raises questions about whether the successors to the Soviet Union will be able to control their most dangerous weapons.

The European did not say how it had obtained the intelligence report. It quoted the report as saying several nuclear warheads vanished from the Semipalatinsk nuclear test site in Kazakhstan, which the republic’s president, Nursultan Nazarbayev, closed early this year.

The European said some intelligence sources believe Nazarbayev was behind the secret nuclear weapons transfer to Iran, trading warheads for oil or hard cash.

Iranian Industry Minister Mohammed Reza Nematzadeh said from Brussels on Thursday that while Iran wants to help rebuild the economy of the ex-Soviet republics, it is “nonsense” to claim it had bought nuclear warheads from them.

“Iran cannot compete with big nuclear powers,” he said. “Therefore, it is not interested in acquiring nuclear weapons.”

In Washington, U.S. intelligence officials have said they have no confirmation of the Russian report, which has surfaced repeatedly since last year.

Two of the nuclear weapons were smuggled across the border from Kazakhstan into Iran last year and now are under the control of Reza Amrollahi, chief of the Iranian Organization for Atomic Energy, according to The European.

It said the Russian report, recently sent to the CIA, disclosed that a third nuclear weapon that disappeared has not been traced but is believed to be in the Middle East.

The European said it is “almost certain” that the missing warheads are nuclear shells, which are relatively small and can be easily moved in an ordinary vehicle.

In Vienna, spokesman Hans Friedrich Meyer said the International Atomic Energy Agency had no knowledge of such a transaction. Iran signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and must report the acquisition of any nuclear material, he said.

The weekly Arabic magazine Al Watan Al Arabi reported in December that Iran took advantage of the chaos in the crumbling Soviet Union to buy components for three nuclear weapons for between $130 million to $150 million and hire more than 50 Soviet nuclear experts to assemble them.

The magazine said the weapons were purchased in an Islamic republic. This points to Kazakhstan, the only republic in mainly Islamic Central Asia with nuclear weapons.

The European quoted unidentified intelligence sources in Germany and France as saying they believe Nazarbayev was behind the secret nuclear weapons transfer to Iran, trading warheads for oil or hard cash.

According to this version, Nazarbayev covered his tracks by letting the information leak that the weapons had been taken by former scientists at the Atomic Research Institute of Kazakhstan who fled to Iran, the paper reported.

The United States and other governments have expressed concern about the spread of nuclear weapons in the wake of the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Ukraine President Leonid Kravchuk said Tuesday that the four nuclear powers among the former Soviet republics–Belarus, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Russia–will soon guarantee adherence to the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty.

The United States has been insisting that the republics comply with START, signed before the Soviet collapse. The treaty would drastically slash nuclear arsenals.

Here is the link to the LA Times Article.

Now you know the truth about Iran and nuclear weapons. They probably have more, but this is what I could prove for now. God bless and stand firm!

The US Navy Pilots May not be Ready for War with China

US Navy Pilots Not Ready for War???

Today I found an article from National Interest and I found it quite alarming! The US Navy and it’s fighter pilots are in trouble both in terms of it’s aircraft and also pilot training. In fact the evaluators say it’s as bad or worse than things were in the 1960s heading into the Vietnam war. Back then they had aircraft that were not equipped for the type of up close and personal fighting that the Vietnamese had in mind and they paid a heavy price for that mistake. Now it appears they’re not equipped or trained to engage a high tech adversary like China or even Russia. Here is the story.

A panel of young aviators voiced a harsh warning to the audience at the U.S. Navy’s annual Tailhook aviation convention in Nevada in September 2019.

The Navy’s pilots aren’t ready to do battle with a high-tech foe such as China. The sailing branch’s planes must improve. Its training, too.

“Commentary from Tailhook 2019 suggests a new crisis is at hand,” James Holmes, a professor at the U.S. Naval War College in Rhode Island, wrote in Proceedings, the professional journal of the U.S. Naval Institute.

Holmes likened naval aviation’s current dilemma to a similar emergency that took place during the 1960s. “Back then the foe was North Vietnam, a doughty opponent that nonetheless posed little threat outside its borders,” Holmes wrote.

By the 1960s the Navy fielded carrier-based fighter jets whose design philosophy centered on guided missiles. It had become an article of faith that U.S. aircraft would prosecute missile engagements at “standoff” range, firing beyond enemy weapons range and beyond visual range. Adversaries would never get off a shot in reply. Missiles had rendered gunfights a thing of the past, or so it was thought in the early 1960s.

Yet Ho Chi Minh’s pilots were an ornery lot, refusing to follow the script American tacticians had written for them. Rather than remain at standoff distance to be blasted out of the sky, North Vietnamese airmen closed to dogfighting range and took their chances in gun duels.

Imagine that: an enemy might decline to do your bidding. U.S. aviators were ill prepared for North Vietnamese tactics. Indeed, the F-4 Phantom—the Navy’s premier fighter in the 1960s—was not even equipped with guns for close-range combat. ….

The present crisis has its roots in the period of relative geopolitical calm that followed the end of the Cold War, Holmes explained. Naval aviation’s training standards slipped. Its planes went years without meaningful upgrades.

China’s rise as an economic and military power, and Russia’s own military resurgence, ended the calm — and revealed that U.S. naval aviation was unprepared for major warfare.

“Recent years, declared one [panelist], have seen a ‘huge shift’ from the relatively placid interlude following the Cold War,” Holmes wrote. “Carrier aircraft no longer boast the same ‘kinematic advantage,’ or edge in speed and energy maneuverability, that once granted them near-invincibility in the Balkan wars, Afghanistan and Iraq. The rest of the story is here.

Sadly it’s not just the US Navy and their pilots that aren’t ready for a high tech war. There is ample evidence to show that the US Air Force is in similar bad shape.

In a report dated October 2019, the Air Force could only meet 62 of attack and 65 percent of strike requirements, but it could supply 92 percent of aerial tanker demand.

Not only that but after examining availability of 13 Air Force and Navy aircraft models, including the B-52, F-22, F/A-18 E/F Super Hornet and AV-8B Harrier, GAO found severe issues such as delayed depot maintenance, needed parts that were no longer manufactured, lack of mechanics, and aircraft flying beyond their service life.

Then of course there is the ongoing F35 debacle which some have described as a total failure as a program as it continues to run into critical flaws grounding half of the entire fleet at times.

In short the US Military is far from its former formidable self as now it is focused more on being politically correct than it is on fighting the next world war. Revelation 18 is about to unfold on America and it will be no more. Soon no one will be able to recognize America for it will have been DECIMATED. Nothing will be the same and there will be nothing but misery and death for those who are not sealed in the Holy Spirit.

REPENT NOW! Time is short.

The reports have been warning us for awhile now. This was from late 2018.

This one was from May of 2020.

Stay ready! Prayed up and prepped up at all times! The USA has been set up to fall and fall hard!

Iran’s Only Nuclear Power Plant Has Emergency Shutdown

Gee this happens right after the so called “Butcher of Tehran” is elected President of Iran. Israel isn’t happy about it and one has to wonder if this nuclear plant shutdown is a welcome gift from Israel. The nuclear deal talks in Vienna have stalled again as well. Here is the English version of an article I found on warnews 24/7.

For the first time since its commissioning in 2013, Iran’s only nuclear power plant has been declared “emergency” and shut down for “repairs”.

The Bushehr plant is Iran’s only nuclear power plant and is used for uranium enrichment.

A message to the new extremist president of Iran?

Is it a “welcome” message from Israel to Iran’s new president? No one can say for sure, but Israeli sources describe Iran’s new president as a “butcher”, saying that ” Iran elected the most extremist president since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.”

The Bushehr nuclear power plant, which has a 1,000 MW reactor, was built by Russia and put into operation in 2013.

Reliable sources speak of something “very serious” that put the factory in a “state of emergency” for the first time .

Technical “failure” at the Bushehr nuclear power plant 

The Bushehr nuclear power plant in southern Iran was shut down “for a few days” after a technical “failure”, the Iranian Atomic Energy Agency announced.

“After a technical failure at the Bushehr station, the facility was temporarily shut down and cut off from the national power grid,” the agency said in a brief statement, without elaborating on the nature of the problem.

According to the national electricity distribution company, the Bushehr nuclear power plant was undergoing “repair” work of an unspecified nature , which may last until the end of the week, which for Iran means Friday.

Israeli attack plans on the table

The company asked the Iranians to limit electricity consumption in order not to burden the grid at a time when the country is experiencing high temperatures.

At the same time, the new head of the Mossad, David Barnea, threatened to launch more covert operations against Iran inside Iranian territory!

It was announced yesterday that the Security Council of Israel will meet to consider the options for air strikes in Iran after the election of the new president, Ebrahim Raisi.

Therefore, all plans for an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities must be reviewed and brought to the attention of the new Israeli government, according to credible information.

Israeli sources emphasize that with the election of a new president in Iran “all options are on the table”!

Israel: Raisi’s election in Iran ‘should be of great concern’ to world

The election of Ebrahim Raisi as president of Iran “should cause great concern” in the world, said a spokesman for the Israeli Foreign Ministry, accusing the newly conservative newly elected president of being committed to Iran’s military nuclear program.

“Mr Rice is committed to a fast-paced military nuclear program, his election clearly reveals Iran’s dangerous intentions and should be of great concern to the international community,” Lior Hayat wrote on Twitter, adding that Iran elected the most extremist president since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

The head of the Judiciary, 60-year-old Ebrahim Raisi, was imposed in the first round of the presidential election amid general dissatisfaction with Iran’s economic and social crisis.

“We have to prepare quickly for a return to the Iranian nuclear deal, ” Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid said this week, adding that “Israel will do everything possible to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear bomb.”

Student of the supreme leader

Born in November 1960 in the holy city of Mashhad, Raisi was appointed attorney general of Karaj, next to Tehran, at the age of just 20 after the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

He remained in the judiciary for more than three decades: Tehran’s attorney general from 1989 to 1994, deputy head of the judiciary from 2004 to 2014, the year he was nominated as Iran’s attorney general.

In 2016, the country’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, appointed Raisi head of the powerful charity Astan-e Konz Razani, which manages Imam Reza’s mausoleum in Mashhad and his vast real estate. Three years later he was appointed head of the Judicial Authority.

Rice, who always wears the black turban of Sayyid (a descendant of Muhammad), attended Ayatollah Khamenei’s religious and Islamic law classes.

According to his official biography, from 2018 he also taught a Shiite seminar in Mashhad. Many Iranian media have suggested he may be the successor to Iran’s 82-year-old supreme leader in July.

Raisin is also a member of the Council of Experts, which appoints the supreme leader.

He is married to Jamileh Alamolhonda, a professor at Sahid-Behehdi University in Tehran, and they have two daughters. Raisi is the son-in-law of Ahmad Alamolhonda, an imam and regional representative of the supreme leader in Mahsad, Iran’s second holiest city.

For the exiled Iranian opposition, Rice’s name is associated with the mass executions of Marxists and left-wing prisoners in 1988, when he was deputy prosecutor in Tehran’s Revolutionary Court.

When asked in 2018 and 2020 about this black page in Iran’s recent history, Raisi denied any involvement, but praised the “command” given, he said, by Ayatollah Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Republic. for these clearances.

Turkey Begins to Organize “Arab Spring” Inside of Israel, Hamas Says Strategy has changed

This is from warnews247 in Greece. I am putting this here in English as a courtesy since some don’t have the Google translator or know how to use it.

It appears that Turkey is helping Hamas in more ways than one and that Hamas’ strategy has changed and it’s war against Israel will no longer be contained to Gaza.

Hamas file photo

Turkey crossed the Rubicon as according to Israeli information, Ankara together with Qatar-Iran have organized 15 armed Palestinian groups and two Salafist-jihadist groups.

These forces are currently fighting against the Israeli armed forces.

The Israelis stress that in the coming days new data will be published about the change of strategy that the Islamists are implementing against Israel.

Turkey: Organizes “Arab Spring” inside Israel

Therefore, according to Israeli sources, this is not just an Israel-Hamas conflict. 

Everything shows that there is a Turkish plan and an attempt to implement the “Syrian Model” by introducing armed groups of jihadists who are fighting on the side of Hamas.

At the same time, the Jihadists now have as their mission the infiltration into the territory of Israel.

That is why we see violence and unrest accompanied by images of civil war in the streets of Israel.

This development is confirmed by the statements of Hamas leaders for “change of the organization’s strategy”.

Heavy bombardment overnight

The Israeli Air Force launched heavy bombardment even in the southern Gaza Strip near the border with Egypt.

Since the start of the Israeli operation “Guardian of the Walls”, the Islamists have fired 3,750 rockets with 550 falling on Gaza. Iron Dome crashed 90%.

Israeli sources say Phase 5 “started” against Hamas by bombing 40 underground networks.

Israel took off 52 fighter jets that relentlessly bombed Hamas targets for 25 minutes. A total of 122 air raids were carried out.

Hamas: There is a change of strategy

Hamas’s spokesman in Iran has revealed that the current conflict is part of the organization’s “strategic shift”. And he explains:

“This war was not instigated by Tehran.

It is not a simple round of confrontation between the Palestinian groups in Gaza and Israel.

Hamas, along with other organizations, has implemented a relocation strategy.

The resistance is no longer just about defending Gaza against Israeli attacks but about defending all Palestinians living in historic Palestine.

In addition, the Resistance will not allow the Israeli occupation forces to attack political targets in Jerusalem (al-Quds).

For the first time we have a riot in Jerusalem, an uprising of Palestinians living in the area since 1948 in the West Bank.

We now have rockets with a range of 250 km.

“We have improved our weapons systems thanks to the help of Islamic countries, especially Iran, which has helped us with the transfer of know-how and materials.”

Iran installs 2nd batch of advanced centrifuges at Natanz

Iran has continued to ramp up its nuclear program in violation of its 2015 agreement with world powers by further enriching uranium and installing new centrifuges, the United Nations’ nuclear agency said.

The fresh breaches of the nuclear deal came as tensions continued to climb in the Middle East, and US and Israeli officials issued warnings about Iran’s nuclear program.

The International Atomic Energy Agency — in a confidential report obtained by Reuters and published Tuesday — said Iran has begun enriching uranium in its underground Natanz plant with a second cascade, or cluster, of centrifuges,.

Iran recently installed a second cascade of advanced IR-2m centrifuges at Natanz to enrich uranium and will soon add a third. Iran was only allowed to use a less advanced type of centrifuge under the terms of the nuclear deal.

The first cascade it installed recently was composed of 174 IR-2m machines, according to Reuters.

Iran’s envoy to the UN nuclear watchdog confirmed on Tuesday the installation of the second batch of advanced centrifuges at Natanz.

“Thanks to our diligent nuclear scientists, two cascades of 348 IR2m centrifuges with almost 4 times the capacity of IR1 are now running… successfully in Natanz,” Kazem Gharibabadi said on Twitter. “Installation of 2 cascades of IR6 centrifuges has also been started in Fordo. There’s more to come soon.”https://platform.twitter.com/embed/index.html?dnt=true&embedId=twitter-widget-0&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1356579388263968768&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.timesofisrael.com%2Fun-iran-breaching-deal-installs-2nd-batch-of-advanced-centrifuges-at-natanz%2F&siteScreenName=timesofisrael&theme=light&widgetsVersion=ed20a2b%3A1601588405575&width=550px

Natanz is Iran’s main nuclear enrichment plant. An explosion at the site last year, which foreign media reports have attributed to Israel or the US, damaged an advanced centrifuge development and assembly plant.

Iran said last month it planned to install 1,000 new centrifuges at Natanz within three months and that its scientists had exceeded previous goals for uranium enrichment.

Also last month, Tehran announced it was beginning to enrich uranium up to 20 percent — far beyond the 3.5% permitted under the nuclear deal, and a relatively small technical step away from the 90% needed for a nuclear weapon. Iran also said it was beginning research into uranium metal, a material that technically has civilian uses but is seen as another likely step toward a nuclear bomb.

Iran said last week it would also move to restrict short-notice inspections of suspect nuclear facilities from late February.

Iran insists it is not seeking to develop nuclear weapons, a position repeated last week by its Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.

Tuesday’s report came amid a flurry of activity surrounding Iran’s nuclear program and as Iran and the US maneuvered ahead of expected negotiations.

US President Joe Biden has said he intends to return to the nuclear deal if Iran first returns to compliance. Iran says the US must first remove all of the sanctions it placed on the country after it withdrew from the treaty.Iran’s nuclear enrichment facility in Natanz, 300 kilometers (186 miles) south of the capital Tehran, on April, 9, 2007.

Zarif on Monday asked the European Union to coordinate a synchronized return of both Washington and Tehran into a nuclear deal.

The US and Iran have exchanged barbs, both before and after Biden took control of the White House, including by issuing threats and carrying out military maneuvers.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Sunday that Iran was currently months away from being able to produce enough material to build a nuclear weapon. And, he said, that timeframe could be reduced to “a matter of weeks” if Tehran further violates restrictions it agreed to under the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers.

Iran and the Trump administration exchanged a steady stream of threats before Trump’s term ended on January 20, with Iran also carrying out fresh breaches of the nuclear agreement. Iran’s aggressive moves were believed to be partially aimed at increasing its leverage ahead of negotiations with Biden.
