PANAGYURISHTE, (BM) – Your briefly report on January 8 in last twelve hours from BulgarianMilitary.com:

Gantz: Iran will be met with ‘painful’ response if it targets Israel

Gantz, a former IDF chief of staff, is also warning Iran not to strike Israel in retaliation for the US drone strike that killed top general Qassem Soleimani.

“The Iranian strike on an American military base proves once again that Iran is a danger to the entire world and to the stability and safety of the Middle East,” says Gantz. “The IDF is the strongest army in the region and I would not recommend that anyone drag Israel into a clash that it isn’t involved in and test it. If they try to drag us in, I am convinced the response will be powerful, harsh, painful and decisive.”

Report: Hezbollah will attack Israel if US responds to Iran attack

Hezbollah will attack Israel if the United States responds to missile attacks carried out by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) on Tuesday night, according to the Iranian Tasnim news agency.

“We in no way consider the Zionist regime (of Israel) to be separate from the criminal US regime in these crimes,” the IRGC warned in a statement.

“We warn the Great Satan, the bloodthirsty and arrogant regime of the US, that any new wicked act or further aggression (against Iran) will bring about more painful and crushing responses,” the group stressed.

The IRGC warned on their Telegram channel that they would attack Dubai in the United Arab Emirates and Haifa in Israel if Iranian soil is targeted, according to CNN.

The French foreign ministry advised French citizens in Haifa to exercise caution following the threat, Reuters has reported. “Following the recent escalation in tensions in the region, the city of Haifa has been the subject of explicit threats,” it said in a statement.

Stoltenberg called on Iran to refrain from further acts of violence

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg condemned Iran’s attacks on the US military base and coalition in Iraq and called on Tehran to refrain from further violence. He stated this on his Twitter.

“I condemn Iran’s missile attacks on US forces and the coalition in Iraq. NATO calls on Iran to refrain from further violence,” the Secretary General wrote.

The situation in the Middle East again worsened after the assassination of Iranian general Kassem Suleimani on January 3 in the area of ​​Baghdad airport with a missile strike of the US Air Force on the orders of US President Donald Trump. Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei has promised to avenge the death of the general.

On the night of January 8, several US military installations in Iraq were attacked by the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) of Iran.
