Iran has told Israel through the UN that it will intervene if the country’s operations against Hamas in Gaza continue, a report has claimed.

Israel has warned 1.1 million people living in the north of the enclave to evacuate ahead of an expected ground operation in Gaza with the IDF planning to strike the territory from land, sea and air.

Iran’s involvement could be through a militant group from Syria or by backing Hezbollah to join the conflict, diplomatic sources told Axios.

Meanwhile, Iran’s foreign minister Hossein Amirabdollahian said that Israel’s operations could cause fighting to expand to other areas of the Middle East which would cause Israel to suffer “a huge earthquake”, reported the Associated Press.

    Real question: why is the us so involved with israel?

    they’re meant to be a main ally in the middle east for the US

    most of the other countries are either allied with Russia/China/Iran/etc or too unstable

    there’s also massive israel lobbying in the US https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israel_lobby_in_the_United_States

      tbh kinda the US’s only ally. Turkey kinda is, and Saudi Arabia really just sells us oil.

          I think they meant the US’s only ally in the middle east, not the whole planet.

          Although it’s still wrong considering the US is allied with turkey, Kuwait, UAE, etc
