Following the US presidential election, many speculations were made by political analysts about the possibility of a change in the political situation in the Middle East, which continues, including how US foreign policy will be with Iran, and especially in relation to the UN Security Council. The leaders of the Islamic Republic began to show these levers in the military and nuclear fields two months ago in order to show a strong lever in the negotiations for the lifting of the US maximum sanctions. The regime conducted at least 12 ground, naval, air, drone, missile, and defense exercises off the coast of the Oman Sea to demonstrate that US sanctions have failed to advance the regime’s military goals in the Middle East!
Repeated threats by regime leaders and the Revolutionary Guards to avenge the blood of Sardar Soleimani on the anniversary of his death were another dimension of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s foreign policy in the Middle East. These threats have prompted Iran’s neighbors in the Persian Gulf to speculate that the regime may take action against US bases and facilities in the Persian Gulf in multiple demonstrations. In order to prevent and prepare for a possible attack by the Revolutionary Guards against the interests of the United States and the Persian Gulf countries, military equipment was poured into the region, including aircraft carriers, support destroyers with cruise missile launchers, nuclear submarines and Prepare more than 500 aircraft based on aircraft carriers of US and Arab Gulf bases, and at least more than 1,000 American Tomahawk cruise missiles and B-52 bombers capable of carrying and launching air-to-surface missiles with nuclear warheads. As a result, the regime was content to launch a surface-to-sea cruise missile just 150 miles from a US ship and end its exercises, while US coalition military equipment remains in the Persian Gulf and off the coast of Oman. Are present. In addition, on Wednesday, February 28, 2017, B-52 aircraft along with Saudi F-16 fighters again trained in the Persian Gulf.
On the other hand, the leaders of the regime showed the world the possibilities of enriching uranium with a concentration of 20% and readiness for enrichment with a higher concentration to make an atomic bomb, including the head of the regime’s nuclear organization Ali Akbar Salehi announced that the regime now has half a kilo of uranium daily. 20 percent and that they have begun to use new centrifuges for metal enrichment.
In addition to military readiness, the Arab countries of the Persian Gulf began to purchase more and more military equipment. The UAE’s latest move includes a $ 23 billion deal, including F-35 fighter jets and several Iron Dome anti-missile systems and a list of other military equipment. “Iron Domes” is made by Rafael Israel Defense Industries Company. Israel has also authorized the sale of these defense systems to Arab countries, including Saudi Arabia.
The new example is Raphael’s highly advanced anti-missile system (1). The Rafael C-Ram and V-Shrad air defense system can monitor 2,000 targets, and the system’s success in targeting, firing and destroying various missiles is more than 90%. This system has very good mobility and can be used with ground training forces, which shows the flexibility of this defense system. The system is based on a special truck that can be deployed in places outside and inside cities. The C-ROM missile is equipped with a highly precision-guided system that greatly increases the percentage of missiles fired. The US Armed Forces uses the Patriot missile defense system, but the new Rafael system is very advanced and with a very high degree of flexibility has been considered by the US Armed Forces.
The previous system, built in 2011 by the Israeli defense industry, was designed to destroy missiles fired at Israel from Gaza. This system showed very high efficiency against rockets fired, which led to further research and optimization of this system. Regarding Israel’s new Rafael air and missile defense system, the Israeli prime minister said that Israel now not only has the most advanced anti-missile system, but that it can also be considered politically an “iron fist”. In 2014, during the presidency of Barack Obama, Israel asked the United States for financial assistance to research and improve the accuracy of these systems, and the United States allocated $ 225 million to promote these industries, which in Congress with 395 votes in favor, only 8 votes in favor. Opposition passed. This shows that the United States will resolutely support Israel in the face of threats from regime leaders and the Revolutionary Guards.
According to Haaretz, the anti-missile system will also be deployed at US bases in Europe against Russian missile threats. The media reports that after the Iranian regime attacked Saudi Arabia’s Aramco oil industry with missiles and drones, Saudi Arabia has decided to deploy these “Iron Dome” systems in critical parts of the country’s economic facilities.
Meanwhile, the spokesman of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the regime, Sardar Abolfazl Shekarchi, said in an interview with the Islamic regime’s radio and television that the elimination of Israel will always remain on their agenda, and if the Zionist regime makes a mistake, “their missile bases “And we will level Haifa and Tel Aviv to the ground in no time.” This idiot is probably in a dream. He ignored the news of Israel’s progress regarding the Israeli Iron Dome, the arrival of F-35 aircraft and the Rafael Iron Dome in the region, calling it a psychological war on the part of Israel and emphasizing that “the strength and authority of the armed forces of the Islamic Republic still “They did not understand.” Sardar Shekarchi made the remarks following a statement by Israeli Army Chief of Staff Avio Kukhawi that he had stated that they would attack Iran militarily if the United States returned to Burjam in accordance with Biden’s election manifesto. It should be noted that due to new purchases of UAE military equipment, it is very likely that Rafael air defense systems will be deployed in Saudi Arabia. In other words, not only has Israel not been and will not be destroyed by the regime’s threats, but they have also deployed Israeli-made military equipment in the regime’s backyard!
