Israel Facing Increasing Danger from Iran

(Israel Hayom) Yoav Limor - Brig.-Gen. Dror Shalom, head of the IDF Military Intelligence Research Division, warns, "We're in a much more complex reality than we were in the past, and it's only getting worse....At the end of the day, it's all about Iran." He estimates it will take Iran two years to build a nuclear bomb. In the past few years, Israel has been very active in Syria against Hizbullah's attempts to arm itself and against Iranian attempts to entrench itself there militarily. "A lot fewer weapons are coming in. The Shiite militia bases they wanted to build aren't being built. Iran's monetary investment has declined." "I think it's very likely" that Quds Force commander Maj.-Gen. Qassem Soleimani will shoot at Israel from Iraq. "It could be surface-to-surface missiles, cruise missiles, or long-range UAVs. He has UAVs that can fly 1,000-1,200 km. (600-700 miles) which he has used in the Persian Gulf....My working assumption is that it's only a matter of time until he tries." In Gaza, "Hamas wants a deal, but one that doesn't recognize Israel....Hamas is now willing to agree to long-term ceasefires....We in intelligence have identified an opportunity for an agreement."
