The Tehran Times newspaper , which is close to the regime, published a detailed map, which it says shows the targets set by Iran to target Israel. Haifa on the map and the Eilat area, as well as areas in the occupied West Bank that are believed to be Israeli settlements, while also showing Israeli cities adjacent to the borders of Gaza, Syria and Lebanon.

A message from Tel Aviv to Tehran The Hebrew newspaper, Yediot , had published a report on Tuesday, saying that "some of the Israeli strikes on Syria were targeting chemical weapons stores," noting that "the message carried by these strikes is that the Israeli army and Israel will not hesitate to observe the red line, which is Preventing the production of any chemical weapons in Syria.  The newspaper added in its report that "the Israeli strikes in Syria were very important, and their aim was to prevent the Assad regime from building a chemical weapon.

The destruction of Haifa and Tel Aviv The Iranian newspaper, which appears to be seeking to convey a clear message from Iran to Israel, says, "The Tehran Times does not need to remind the illegitimate regime in Israel of Iran's defensive capabilities, yet it seems that they need to remember something."

Point."  In his article, Brik said, "In recent months, it has become clear that the air force cannot be relied upon to win a battle. This was demonstrated by the recent war on Gaza, as most of the Air Force's fighters participated in it, which targeted Hamas and Palestinian factions' sites by launching hundreds of missiles that targeted Hamas and Palestinian factions." Their cost exceeded billions, but despite all that, Israel was unable to stop the firing of rockets from Gaza into Israeli areas.  He added: "For many years, we have been talking about the Air Force as a strategic arm. During that period, the rest of the army battalions, especially the land forces, were neglected and their situation worsened. Under these conditions, it is not possible to win a battle, and we cannot prevent the deaths only through the use of the Air Force." We are now paying a heavy price."  He said that the air force had miserably failed to stop the Hamas and Islamic Jihad rockets. He explained, "In a regional war in which several fronts are opened, Israel will be bombarded with thousands of missiles of different dimensions, some of which will be launched from hundreds of kilometers away, and the size of the air force cannot deal with such an attack, and even if it can attack and harm the enemy, it will not be able to stop the firing of missiles unless It happened in the war on Gaza.  "In such a war, Israel will continue to be targeted from everywhere, from the south, north and east on a daily basis, and thousands of rockets and bombs will be launched at civilian areas and strategic targets, much more destructive than Hamas's," he added.  No power for Israel "Imagine. Unmanned suicide planes, missiles carrying hundreds of kilograms of warheads falling on our heads. The demolition and damage will be great and we will pay the price of thousands of lives and wounded. The launch of precision missiles will disrupt the air force also by bombing airports and control towers. Electricity and water desalination plants and oil and gas pipelines are bombed."  "Our enemies "Hamas, Iran and Hezbollah" have the ability to continue the war for long weeks because of their stockpiles of weapons, the number of missiles may exceed 250,000, but Israel does not have enough missiles to confront these missiles, especially surface-to-surface missiles."  He said, "The air force was unable to stop the Hamas rockets. What about the rockets that rain down on us from different directions?"  The Israeli military analyst added: "Iran and Hezbollah were closely following what happened between us and Hamas, and they understood that Israel has no ability to respond to the rockets. For such a war, Israel is not ready and I think it is not working for it seriously."
