Biden predicts Iran will attack Israel “sooner rather than later.”

United States President Joe Biden believes Iran will attack Israel “sooner rather than later” in retaliation for the bombing of its consulate in Damascus, Syria, last week and has called on Iranian authorities not to resort to armed attacks initiate reaction.

“No,” Biden warned at the end of the press conference this Friday.

The President has assured, as he has on other occasions, that his country is “committed to the defense of Israel” and will give its full support to the Israeli authorities in the event of an outbreak of open conflict with the Islamic Republic.

“We support Israel, we will defend Israel and Iran will not win,” Biden said of this hypothetical Iranian attack. “I don’t want to talk about classified information, but I expect it will happen sooner rather than later,” he said.

These comments come after US National Security Council spokesman John Kirby insisted this Friday that a hypothetical direct attack by Iran on Israel was a “very credible, viable and imminent” scenario after a week of Iranian threats.

“We are very aware of a threat that we perceive to be very public and very credible,” Kirby said at a press conference this Friday.

In fact, that same Friday, two U.S. government officials told CBS on condition of anonymity that Iran could launch an attack “with more than a hundred drones and dozens of missiles on military bases inside Israeli territory” “before the end of the weekend.”

The attack on the consulate in Damascus, attributed to Israel without any comment from authorities, is considered the most serious targeting the Iranian presence in Syria, where numerous Islamic Republic advisers are providing strategic assistance and coordinating activities to the Syrian government. by militia groups in the Arab Republic.

The attack killed at least 16 people, including two civilians, with most of the victims being members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard’s Quds Force and several Syrian members of a Hezbollah-related militia.
