Irans goal is to exhaust Israel, says top military adviser

Pro-Palestine protest takes place outside London’s Israel embassy

Iran is fighting a war by proxy with Israel, according to a top military adviser who is familiar with the situation.

Kobi Michael, a senior researcher at the Tel Aviv-based Institute for National Security Studies (INSS), spoke to CNN regarding the ongoing developments with Hamas – the terrorist group whose surprise attack this weekend triggered new Israeli-Palestine conflict.

Hamas attacked early Saturday morning, launching thousands of rockets into Israel at around 6.30am while terrorists poured into the country.

At least 900 Israelis were killed in the violence while more than 100 are thought to have been taken hostage.

According to Michael, Iran — which has been funding Hamas — intends to “exhaust” Israel’s resources until it ceases to exist.

According to Michael, Iran — which has been funding Hamas — intends to “exhaust” Israel’s resources until it ceases to exist.

“Here is the common denominator between the Iran strategy and the Hamas strategy. Therefore Iran is an asset for Hamas and Hamas is an asset for Iran,” he said.

However, it’s important to note that Hamas and Iran’s alliance is nothing if not tenuous.

They have not always seen eye-to-eye on situation, but are seemingly united in their desire to destroy Israel.

Israel is now planning on launching a ground offensive in the Gaza Strip which will “not stop until Hamas no longer exists”.

And that’s not the only front that Israel is fighting.

“Lebanon and Israel are technically in a state of war,” reports the outlet. “Hezbollah has a stronghold in the south of the country which borders Israel.

“In 2006, an international war broke out between the two countries that led to over 1,100 dead in Lebanon and over 200 dead in Israel.”

Lebanon and Israel, however, have only rarely exchanged fire, with Lebanon previously making it clear they will not fire on Israel unless Israel strikes first.

The Israel-Palestine conflict continues to rage on as of this writing, with scores of both soldiers and civilians dead on all sides.
