Netanyahu is seeking to expand the war

All evidence in West Asia strongly suggests that Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu is seeking to expand the war in Gaza to prevent his political death and as part of this strategy, he has put attacks against Syria and Lebanon high on his agenda.

Benny Gantz, the former minister of military affairs and chief of staff of the Israeli Army, who is now a member of the Israeli War Cabinet, openly revealed this objective on January 6, and said, "The situation on the northern border of Israel needs to change, and the Israeli military forces are on the second front. In the north, they are ready to attack." 

A few days after this threat, the terror forces of the Zionist regime killed Saleh al-Aroori, the deputy of the political branch of Hamas, by violating the territorial integrity of Lebanon. In response, Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Lebanon's Hezbollah, emphasized on January 13 that the killing of al-Arouri will not go unpunished and that if the Israeli regime is thinking of war against Lebanon, Hezbollah will enter into an "unlimited" battle against Israel. 

Hours after Nasrallah's speech, the Zionist regime assassinated Hossein Yazbek, a senior Hezbollah commander, in the town of Ras Naqourah in southern Lebanon to demonstrate its will to expand the war. In response to Israel's belligerent act, the Lebanese resistance launched a volley of 62 rockets on the Israeli regime’s Meron air control base on Mount Al-Marq, the highest mountain in the north of occupied Palestine

This base is the only air control and management center of Israel and there is no other alternative to it. The attack was Hezbollah's first reaction to the violation of Lebanon's sovereignty and the martyrdom of al-Arouri.

Ever since the Supreme Court of the Israeli regime overturned one of the key components of the controversial judicial reforms proposed by Netanyahu last week, it has been expected that he would try to expand the war to avoid trial and maintain his power. Netanyahu's opponents in the Supreme Court believed that the proposed reforms would pave the way for corruption and improper appointments of the prime minister's incompetent friends to important positions and stonewall his trial on corruption charges. Hebrew news media said that Netanyahu's trial sessions will be held despite the conflict in Gaza.

The Supreme Court’s action shows internal divisions have deepened within the Zionist regime and confirms the depth of the conflict between its power factions. Political observers believe that the decision of the Supreme Court has weakened Netanyahu's legal standing and the possibility of his removal is an attempt to spread the war to neighboring countries. According to international sources, the Zionist regime has violated United Nations resolutions 30,000 times by violating the Lebanese airspace daily, and hence Hezbollah's deterrent attacks on the occupied territories are in self-defense and therefore legitimate.

Since the beginning of Israel's invasion of Gaza, Hezbollah has carried out more than 670 operations against Israeli military positions. The American think tank "Institute for War Studies" reported that due to Hezbollah's deterrent attacks, about 60,000 Israeli settlers from 40 settler communities in northern occupied territories have left their homes. The Israeli Ministry of War ordered the evacuation of the city of Qiryat Shemona, whose population of 23,000 was moved to public houses. Other settlements near the Lebanese border were also evacuated, but the evacuation of Qiryat Shemona shows the critical situation in the border regions.

The recent Israeli attacks targeting various areas in the Rif Governorate of Damascus from the occupied Golan Heights, as well as the west of Latakia and specific locations in the south of Aleppo, were also conducted with the intention of extending the conflict to Syria.

The US forces also struck the Hashd al-Shaabi centers in Iraq and assassinated Abu Taqvi al-Saeidi, the commander of the 12th Hashd al-Shaabi brigade in a terrorist operation that indicates America's desire to expand the war.

From the very first days of the Gaza war, the Islamic Republic of Iran warned that if Israel's crimes continue and attacks on civilians intensify, the geographical scope of the war will broaden. It appears that Israel's aggressive actions, driven by the goal of keeping Netanyahu in power, have changed the balance of war and West Asia will soon witness new developments.
