DEFENSIVE MOVES OR PREPARATION FOR WAR WITH IRAN?

The US has decided to deploy the Israeli Iron Dome Missile Interceptor Systems, purchased in 2019, in Eastern European countries and also in the Gulf countries where the US Central Command (CENTCOM) operates and has established operational military bases. This step coincides with the US decision that Israeljoin CENTCOM (with Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Bahrein, Jordan, Iraq, Egypt, Sudan, Afghanistan, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, Pakistan and more) following the normalisation of trade and diplomatic relations between several Arab and Islamic countries and Tel Aviv.

Iran considers the transfer of Israeli operational activities from EUCOM to CENTCOM an aggressive move allowing Israel to use all US military bases deployed around the “Islamic Republic”. Iran believes the decision to deploy the Israeli Iron Dome could be a step towards a possible preemptive military strike on Iran. An Israeli attack on selective targets in Iran is possible if the US returns to the nuclear deal unconditionally. Israel could also attack Iran if President Joe Biden slows down a possible return to the nuclear deal and fails to lift all sanctions imposed on Iran. Iran would then respond, first by increasing its uranium enrichment, withdrawing from treaties, preventing inspectors’ access to its nuclear sites and increasing the number and quality of its centrifuges. This expected Iranian move will cross Israel’s red lines. Is the Middle East headed towards war or are these moves ultimately and solely defensive?
