Israel, Iran Send Reinforcements to Red Sea
This will surely end well
In the wake of intelligence indicating another attacking stemming from the restive Egyptian Sinai, Israel sent two more submarines to its Red Sea border with Egypt, the IDF announced today.
Meanwhile, on the other end of the Red Sea, Iran is sending a submarine and a warship to the Red Sea and to the neighboring Gulf of Aden. It is doing this, the military said, to “convey the message of peace and friendship to all countries.” Nothing says peace and friendship like weapons docked nearby.
This is further in the context of Iran becoming closer to Egypt’s post-Mubarak regime, even moving toward restoring diplomatic relations, which were severed following the events of 1979: the revolution in Iran; Egypt’s offering sanctuary to the deposed Shah; and the Israeli-Egyptian peace treaty.
Just thought everyone should be aware of the confluence. Have a pleasant afternoon!
