BEIRUT (Dispatches) – The occupying regime of Israel’s war minister Benny Gantz has proposed the formation of a U.S.-led regional military front, featuring Tel Aviv and its Arab allies, against Iran.
He cited the Zionist regime’s military cooperation with some Persian Gulf Arab countries as well as Egypt and Jordan, saying there were efforts to expand this cooperation.
“…what is needed is not just cooperation, but also a regional force build-up, with American leadership, which would strengthen all parties involved,” Gantz said.
He said the occupying regime was “working continually” towards enabling the formation of such an alliance.
The U.S. mediated normalization deals between the occupying regime and the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain in August 2020. Sudan and Morocco followed suit by joining the so-called Abraham Accords.
Saudi Arabia has backed the agreements, and is widely expected to be the next regional Arab state which would forge an official relationship with the regime.
Ganz’s remarks came ahead of a regional visit by U.S. President Joe Biden. The July 13-16 tour will take Biden to Saudi Arabia and the occupied Palestinian territories.
The visit is intended to bring about more gravitation among the regional Arab states and the Zionist regime. Such occasions have also been traditionally used towards demonization of the Islamic Republic and its nuclear and defensive programs.
The Islamic Republic has, on numerous occasions, warned the countries of the region against allowing foreign interference into intra-regional equations, saying the problems of the region have to be resolved through dialog and among its own members.
