Yemen has officially entered the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, raising the stakes in an already volatile region. The launch of a significant number of ballistic missiles and drones underscores their commitment, they say, to support the Palestinian people. The Israeli nuclear plant in Dimona is targeted by the Shiite Islamist Houthis: “We will hit it until we blow it up”.
Yemen’s pro-Iranian Houthi (Ansar Allah) rebels, who control half of the country and its capital Sanaa, said on Tuesday they had launched a “large number” of ballistic missiles and drones at Israel, amid the Jewish state’s war with Islamist Hamas in the Palestinian Gaza Strip.
Yemen’s military has announced the launch of special operations against Israel amid its siege of Gaza, it was announced on Tuesday, with the situation in the Middle East escalating dangerously, and fears of a generalization of the conflict intensifying.
Houthi involvement is quite serious. Their forces have Toufan medium-range ballistic missiles (based on the Iranian Quds 3) with a range of up to 2,000 km.
Their latest, third attempt to strike Israel is proving to be more serious than it appeared, as their target was the Shimon Peres Negev Nuclear Research Center in Dimona.
In fact, the statements of their representative, who not only admitted that they are responsible for three attempts to destroy it with the use of ballistic missiles and drones, but also that they will continue, shows that they are willing to cause a total ignition in the area without calculating the consequences.
For its part, Iran announced that all pro-Iranian organizations will not remain silent.
In fact, the Islamist organization Hezbollah released a video, in which it is stated that on Friday 3/11 Iran will make an important announcement, which cannot be ruled out being its involvement in the war.
Meanwhile, amid mounting pressure on Egypt to accept Palestinian refugees, the country’s prime minister, Mostafa Madbouly, said he remained committed to protecting the land and its sovereignty, no matter the cost.
“We are ready to sacrifice millions of lives to ensure that no one encroaches on our territory,” Madbouli told a gathering in Sinai of military leaders, local tribal chiefs, parliamentarians and other politicians.
The prime minister said Egypt will never allow any imposed situation or resolution of regional issues at its expense.
Iodine tablets are being mailed to millions of Swiss citizens as the country prepares for a disaster at one of its nuclear power plants.
According to SwissInfo, approximately 4.6 million potassium iodide tablets were distributed in 2014. The tablets have a lifespan of 10 years, but are now about to expire.
Everyone who lives within a 50-kilometer radius of one of the country’s three nuclear power plants will receive iodine tablets by mail. According to the website jodtabletten, this is about 4 million people.
The total number of tablets is lower than in 2014 because one nuclear power plant in Mühleberg was shut down.
Thus, the situation seems to repeat the story of the recent passage of 100 Turkish ships through the Bosphorus, about which the Armenians were very excited. They immediately forgot that they hated the Turks and remembered that the Turks hated the Jews more:
In fact, on October 29, 1923, on the 100th anniversary of the Turkish Republic, Turkey paraded 100 ships. And although the convoy was definitely not going to Yerevan, the Armenians froze in anticipation:
It is possible that in Switzerland there is a similar situation and everything is really not as it seems, as the local bosses say. That the shelf life of the tablets has expired and all that.
On the other hand, Switzerland is not a poor country having all the nuclear power plants well built. There was no information anywhere about leaks, breakdowns, etc. Why such a concern?
It may well be that the country’s authorities know something about the imminent radioactive fallout, but do not want to scare citizens. If this is the case, then the pills could be distributed in other places.
A historic military unfolding in the Mediterranean
There are already five aircraft carrier groups operating in the region, which support more than 50 ships of other classes, represented by the US and allied fleets:
Unlike the huge number of other deployments, there is now a very frequent substitution of GPS signals and a real fog of war hangs over the region.
The situation with submarines is also interesting. Each AUG includes at least two in the state, so they are certainly present in the Mediterranean Sea. But the relocation and frequent flights of the Boeing E-6B Mercury attracted attention:
The rest of the air also has somewhat unusual traffic. So on the 28th alone, 50 C-17 Globemaster flights were counted:
At the same time, fighters, attack aircraft and other aircraft are being transferred.
The thermometer in the Middle East is rising quite a bit and it remains to be seen where things will traverse as there is preparation for a very serious global event. It is just not yet clear when it will begin.
