The confrontation between Israel and Iran

Israel Could be the Spark to War with Iran: 5 Geopolitical Effects You Need to Know 

1. Israeli presence in the Persian Gulf could trigger a war

Commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy, Rear Admiral Alireza Tangsiri, has called on the United States and the United Kingdom to take responsibility for an Israeli presence in the Persian Gulf, warning that it may trigger a war in the region. Tangri told the Lebanese news agency Al Mayadeen on Sunday: “Any kind of presence of the Zionist Regime in the Persian Gulf is illegal as it may trigger war and conflict in the region.” This is a development that stirs up the tensions in the region even further, and should Israel insist on its presence, the conflict could be a possibility.

2. Iran’s threat to Israel on the Red Sea

According to reports last August, Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthi rebels attacked two Saudi oil tankers in the Bab al-Mandab Strait at the southern entrance to the Red Sea. That incident prompted Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to directly warn Iran against seeking to block the strait, and promise that Israel and a “determined international coalition” would prevent this. This is another pathway to open conflict between a western coalition and Iran, as the strait is crucial to Israeli trade with Asia, and would hence prompt a response.
