Iran may last out at Israel, warns US official

Sunday, January 31, 2010 |  Israel Today Staff

US National Security Advisor Gen. James Jones is warning that Iran is likely to lash out at Israel via surrogates in response to increasing international pressure over its nuclear program and growing internal frustration with the ruling Islamic regime.

Jones told reporters that what he sees happening is Iran prodding Hizballah and Hamas to escalate hostilities against Israel from Lebanon and Gaza, respectively. Iran provides the bulk of military aid to both terror groups.

Israel has marked heightened tension along its northern border in recent weeks, with both Hizballah and its Syrian allies mobilizing their forces while telling the Arab world that the Jewish state is about to attack Lebanon.
