EA on International Outlets: Iran’s “Demonstration” Attacks on Israel

I joined Dublin NewsTalk’s Pat Kenny Show on Tuesday to evaluate Israel’s possible responses to the more than 320 drones and missiles fired by Iran on the country early Sunday.

Listen to Discussion from 1:04.42

I set out the military, political, and international considerations, which point to Israeli strikes on Iranian allies — such as Lebanon’s Hezbollah and Iranian-led militias in Iraq and Syria — outside Iran.

But will Israel defy Iran’s symbolic attack and continue its targeted assassinations of Iranian commanders in Syria?

And will the world remember that Israel’s open-ended, deadly attacks on Gaza are ongoing?
