The NY Times reported last week that an anonymous US official claimed Israel was behind the operation in the Red Sea against the Iranian IRGC Navy reconnaissance vessel and floating military base, the Saviz, and the attack was in retaliation for an earlier Iranian attack on an Israeli cargo ship. The report described how the ship had been damaged. A few weeks earlier, a report in the Wall Street Journal claimed that Israel attacked multiple Iranian ships transporting oil and equipment from Iran to Syria, since 2019.
Unconfirmed reports in Israel are saying that someone in the foreign media may have actually received the information on the planned attack on the Saviz before the attack happened and was then asked by someone in Israel to hold off publishing the information until after the operation was completed.
A lot of concern and finger-pointing has been going around the inner circles of Israel’s security establishment as to who possibly leaked the information on Israel’s various secret operations and why. Some reporters have been hinting that it was senior politicians in the coalition (such as it is) or the opposition, depending on the reporters’ political bias. Others claim it was the US.
But at this point, defense officials are relatively sure it did not come directly from any Israeli source, according to a Walla report.
The concern now is that someone in the US government has been leaking the classified operational information that Israel has been sharing with US government officials.
What is still unclear to Israel is if this is a leak by an individual, a one-off event, or a change in US policy under the Biden administration, and what this mean with regards to future sharing of intelligence information with the American government.
The issue of the leaks may be raised during the upcoming visit to Israel by US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin on Sunday.

As the new White House administration seeks to shift US policy concerning the Middle East, it has removed key military assets during a time in which military pressure is mounting from the Islamic Republic.
In what was first reported by the Wall Street Journal, the Biden administration is moving military assets out of the Gulf region at a significant rate, according to a report this week. The removal of military interests from the region is reportedly for several reasons, including the refocusing on other regions of the world. However, there’s no question that the Biden administration has zero intentions of working with the Saudis like the former administration.
According to the report, the White House has “removed at least three Patriot antimissile batteries from the Gulf region, including one from Prince Sultan Air Base in Saudi Arabia, that had been put in place in recent years to help protect American forces.”
Continuing, it revealed that more assets could soon be departing the region, saying, “Some capabilities, including an aircraft carrier and surveillance systems, are being diverted from the Middle East to answer military needs elsewhere around the globe…other reductions are under consideration.”
This move from the Biden administration comes when the Iranian-sponsored Houthi Rebels have been increasing their attacks on the Kingdom via ballistic missiles and explosive drones. They have often targeted Aramco oil facilities and civilian airports.
Despite the administration’s said commitment to building a relationship with the Saudis, removing these key military interests comes at a very compromising time.
In my estimation the end times, as the Bible calls it, began when a tiny piece of ground in the Middle East was given back to the Jewish people. On May 14 1048 the nation of Israel was born. Many including myself the term is reborn, but for those who only trace history back to the day they were boren, I will leave it as it is. Biblically God gave sure words of Prophecy through Isaiah, Daniel and other prophets in the Old Testament to that fact of Israel becoming a great nation in the last days. The fig tree shall blossom and the desert bloom like a rose. To anyone who does not believe in God, I point to Israel.
For those of us who think the world revolves around our Western culture and nations, think again. The center of it all is Jerusalem in Israel. We are but bit players in the grand scheme of what is termed “The Last Days.” As we look back on that day in 1948 and realize President Truman’s signature fulfilled Bible Prophecy found in Isaiah 66:8 “Shall a nation be brought forth in one day? Shall a nation be brought forth in one moment. The resounding answer is yes!

Folks this is a dangerous game that is being played in our government by the pretend president. He is purposely distancing himself from Israel. Pray for Israel and our rotten government.
More Iranian-backed militias were targeted in a suspected Israeli airstrike over the weekend in the Deir ez-Zor region; Other interests are reported to have been hit in the attack.
In eastern Syria, the Deir Ez-Zor region, specifically Al-Bukamal, experienced what is believed to have been another Israeli airstrike over the weekend. Al-Bukamal has been a frequent hotspot for Israeli airstrikes, especially in the last year or more as Iranian entrenchment has grown inside Syria, something Israeli officials have vowed to prevent.
This would be the fourth Israeli airstrike in Syria in January should Israel be the source.
Al-Bukamal is the major border crossing town from Iraq into Syria as the Iranian regime continues to seek a “highway” from Tehran to the Mediterranean coast.
In Saturday’s attack, it’s unknown whether or not there was a specific target, though it is confirmed that multiple vehicles were hit. However, the Imam Ali base in the area may have been of designated interest as it includes several Iranian military elements. Additionally, it’s reported that a new shipment of missiles arrived from Iran at the end of the week.
Between the four strikes that occurred in January, several dozen pro-Iranian fighters were killed in addition to the destruction of weapons and military structures such as munition warehouses, tunnels, and various military vehicles. Each of the strikes took place nearly one week apart from each other.
Saturday night’s series of attacks amounted to 15 total airstrikes.
Again keep your eyes on the Middle East, including the face that Fake President Biden sent in troops to Syria. Military Industrial complex needs war for their success. JUST MY OPION.
Russia is ready to help the Iranian regime build new nuclear power units at the Bushehr nuclear power plant on the Persian Gulf.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov held a press conference with his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif on Tuesday, reported Russian state news agency TASS.
“Particularly we discussed cooperation on construction of new power units of the Busher Nuclear Power Plant in Iran and overall welcomed the drive of all our colleagues from the economic block of the governments of the two countries and Russian and Iranian business circles to comprehensively expand multifaceted partnership,” he said.
UPDATE: Twin suicide bombs rocked a busy market in central Baghdad on Thursday morning, killing at least 28 people and injuring 73 others, a security official told CNN.
Not my favorite source, but under Biden Middle East becomes a powder keg again.
The United States flew two B-52 bombers over the Persian Gulf on Wednesday as a forewarning to Iran against any potential attacks against American or allied targets in the Middle East.
Additionally, the senior military official said there could be a “potential for other more complex attacks” against Americans in Iraq. “I think it is likely that the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad would be attacked again in some manner.”
He added, “We’re seeing planning for, particularly in Iraq for complex attacks that require Iranian assistance in order to be pulled off. It’s unclear to us, whether it’s contingency planning, or whether it’s a plan that is advancing because approval has been given and they’re just trying to get all the pieces in place and execute.”
