Iran - Israel Opening the Doors of Doomsday to the Third World War

The Middle East geography has been a region where geopolitical competition frequently sparks. Relations between Iran and Israel constitute one of the most prominent examples of this competition. The developments experienced in recent days may reshape the balances in the region.

While Iran is defined as an actor that rejects Israel's existence and tries to increase its influence in the region, Israel carries out various policies and operations to limit Iran's influence in the region. Recently, the tension between these two countries has increased and fueled the conflicts in the region.

In particular, concerns about Iran's nuclear program have escalated tensions in the region. Although the international community has made various agreements to limit Iran's capacity to acquire nuclear weapons, there are problems in fulfilling and maintaining these agreements. Israel, on the other hand, sees Iran's nuclear program as a threat and advocates that the international community adopt a stricter stance on this issue.

These days, the tension between Iran and Israel manifests itself not only at the rhetorical level but also in concrete steps. Israel carries out air strikes against Iran-backed groups and carries out various operations to limit Iran's influence in the region. Especially with Israel's bombing of the Iranian Embassy in Damascus on April 1, 2024, and Iran's subsequent UAV and missile attacks targeting Israel on April 13, 2024, the Iran-Israel tension moved to another dimension. On the other hand, Iran responds with rhetoric and action against Israel and activates its allies in the region.

These developments have the potential to lead to larger-scale conflicts as they affect the political balances in the region. The international community must make greater efforts to prevent this tension from escalating and to find peaceful solutions. Important steps should be taken to keep diplomatic channels open and establish dialogue between the parties and reduce tension in the region.

However, in order for these developments not to progress to an even more dangerous point, the parties need to be careful and avoid provocative steps. The tension between Iran and Israel threatens stability and peace in the region, and the international community needs to play a more active role in this regard.

It is important for all parties in the region to prefer cooperation and dialogue instead of conflict in order to reduce tension in the region and ensure lasting peace. Only in this way can it be possible to resolve the tensions between Iran and Israel and create a more stable environment in the region. Reducing the tension between the two countries and ensuring stability in the region requires joint efforts of the international community.

It is not possible to ensure security and stability in the region without establishing an independent Palestinian state within the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital. This course of events opens the doors of the Apocalypse to the third world war.
