Iran deployed medium-range ballistic missiles in Yemen
MOSCOW, (BM) – Iran continues its aggressive actions against Israel, fueling the “cold” war between them in recent decades. Russia’s Aviapro news agency claims that the Iranians have delivered and deployed dozens (some say hundreds – ed.) of ballistic missiles in Yemen.
The Yemeni Houthi rebels are the ultimate recipients of ballistic missiles. They are medium-range, the agency said. This type of missile has a range of at least 2000 km. This missile range means that anyone can easily hit any point in Israel.
Aviapro’s military expert says that by deploying ballistic missiles in Yemen, Iran is not allowing Israel to control possible directions of attack. In recent years, the failures of the US Patriot air defense system could also be a critical factor in a “successful Iranian attack.”
In-depth analyzes and comments from sources in the area suggest that Yemeni rebels are ready to fight on Iran’s side, but not at this time. However, a possible “Israeli aggression” against the Islamic Republic would be why the Houthi rebels got involved in the Iran-Israel proxy war. The Ansar Allah (or Houthi – ed.) movement recently expressed a similar view.
Israeli-Iranian proxy war / cold war
Communication between Israel and Iran is mostly threatening and hostile. Such has been the relationship between the two countries for a very long time. This situation is known as the proxy conflict, the proxy war, or the Cold War between the two countries.
The conflict “appeared” on the world map after the Iranian revolution in 1979. In all the years to this day, Iran aims to destroy Israel as a state. Tehran supports groups and organizations that are hostile to the Jewish state and people. On the other hand, Israel is worried about Iran’sIran’s nuclear program. The proximity of the two countries worries Tel Aviv that Iranians could use them against Israel if Iran has nuclear weapons. Israel also finds its allies in the face of the United States and Saudi Arabia, which are apparent opponents of Iran.
Thus, this conflict gradually turned into an Israeli-Iranian war. The competition has been going on since the start of the Syrian civil war. According to Iran, Israel rules by an illegitimate “Zionist regime,” a Tehran problem. Iran’sIran’s other point of reference is that the United States is hostile to Muslims because it supports Israel.
