Iran holds Israel responsible for the drone strike that hit their factory while tensions between Israel and Palenstine worsen.
Israel and Palenstine have a long history of disputes, and the tension between both groups only grows more intense as time passes. In addition, Israel and Iran’s relationship is becoming more hostile due to the claims that Israel striked an Iranian factory.
The conflict between Israel and Palenstine dates back to 1947, when the Partition Plan sought to divide Palenstine into Jewish and Arab states, according to the Global Conflict Tracker. The territory was split into three parts: West Bank, State of Israel and the Gaza Strip. Now, the Palestinian and Israeli people continue to fight over who the land belongs to and how it’s controlled.
According to Global News, violence has risen to new levels between Israel and Palestine since last March, causing experts to worry that the discourse between Israel and Palestine might result in a full-scale war. Ferry de Kerckhove, who works both with the Canadian Global Affairs Institute and surveillances the conflicts in the Middle East said, “the outcome of all of this is looking extraordinarily bleak, particularly the potential for violence.”
The article adds that in 2022, Israeli forces were estimated to have killed 146 Palestinian people, and 34 of them were children. Additionally, Palestinian forces killed around 31 Israelis last year. The Israeli and Palestinian deaths totals have been the most deaths the Palestinian people have seen in 18 years and the most deaths the Israeli people have seen since 2008.
Back in November, the United Nations warned that the conflict was “reaching a boiling point,” because of the constant violence that was breaking out.
Now, reports are saying that Israel has rejected trying to forge a more peaceful path for the future.
The report also stated that “none of the Palestinians we spoke to felt that there was any possibility for a two-state solution.” The speculation is both sides are getting more aggressive with their approaches since neither one of them will forfeit the land.
Furthermore, Israel and Iran are at crossroads with each other after it was speculated that Israel was responsible for striking an Iranian factory.
According to Al Jazeera News, it was said that five Iranians were given the task to assassinate Israeli citizens and a former Israeli diplomat in Turkey. This only fueled the fire between Iran and Israel.
According to Al Jazeera News, Parsi said, “It’s no secret that Israel always opposed the JCPOA. In Israel’s eyes, representatives of Iran often openly express intentions to annihilate the Jewish state.”
Israel has been said to engage in shadow war with Iran for several years now. There have been attacks on Iran’s infrastructure as well as strikes on Iranian bases in Syria and Iraq. The attacks have been credited to Israel.
If Iran’s nuclear deal falls through, the shadow war between Iran and Israel will only grow more intense.
Yaniv Voller, teacher of politics of the Middle East at the University of Kent, is surveilling what could happen between Israel and Iran. “Israeli officials have declared that Israel will not allow Iran to develop nuclear weapon capabilities,” said Voller.
Additionally, Naftali Bennett is an Israeli politician who wanted to “strike inside Iran in response to any attack on Israelis or Jews around the world,” according to the New York Times. The assumption that can be made is Bennett wants to send Iran a message that Israel won’t be messed with. This feeds into the constant disagreements between both nations.
The recent strike on Iran’s factory and the hostile shadow war between the two countries could possibly result in a full-blown war in the future.
It seems probable that these countries will only grow more heartless towards one another if they don’t find a way to resolve their problems.
