In 2019, the risks of preserving the Iranian nuclear deal are much more serious, and there are enough prerequisites for escalating the conflict. This conclusion was reached in the new report of the International Crisis Group

The report is timed to the third anniversary of the implementation of the “Joint Comprehensive Action Plan” - a political agreement between Iran and the United States, Russia, France, China and the United Kingdom regarding a nuclear program.

The report's authors argue that Iran is unlikely to refuse from a nuclear deal without any friction. In May 2018, US President Donald Trump announced a decision to withdraw from the Iranian nuclear deal, after which he reintroduced sanctions against Tehran. Despite Washington’s statement, Iran continues to abide by the terms of the deal.

Experts believe that Iran will then seek to hurt the United States, and military funds will likely be used for this.

“Iran wants to put the burden of blame directly on the US. The Iranians are quite confident that they will be able to stay afloat until 2021, ”said Ali Warez, Director of the ICG Iran Project.

Meanwhile, the fulfilment of the terms of the contract by Iran after the US withdrawal "has actually improved," inspectors state. Partly because Iran does not want to give the United States reasons for action. Against the background of Washington’s release, other participants in the deal are desperately trying to keep the Iranian nuclear deal afloat, the newspaper notes.

However, if in 2020 some democrat comes to power in the United States after the presidential election, Trump will still be more difficult to return to, then it seems, the material says.

Israel conducted secret missile defense tests in Alaska:
  • Israel, together with the United States, conducted tests of the Hetz-3 anti-missile system in Alaska, said the Prime Minister of the Jewish state, Benjamin Netanyahu. He stressed that the interceptor missile hit the ballistic missiles "outside the atmosphere at unprecedented speeds." A joint Israeli-American development is designed to fight Iran.

  • Joint tests of the anti-missile system of Israel and the USA have successfully passed in Alaska. This was stated by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, reports Times of Israel.

“Secret shooting exceeded all imaginable expectations. Hetz-3 successfully intercepted ballistic missiles outside the earth’s atmosphere at previously unseen altitudes and speeds, ”the politician said.

The article notes that the Hets-3 missile defense system (Strela-3 - Gazeta.Ru) is being tested by the Israel Defense Ministry together with the US Missile Defense Agency. It is designed to intercept targets flying in near-Earth space.
As conceived by the designers and the military, this missile defense system should strengthen the "upper echelon" of the Israeli defense. In particular, it must effectively intercept and shoot down the whole range of potential threats, both Iranian ballistic missiles and Palestinian improvised rocket bombs. 
In the shooting was also used American radar AN-TPY 2, which proved the interchangeability of weapons systems of the United States and Israel.

Israel’s missile defense system consists of several echelons of defense. Israeli territory is regularly fired from Gaza. At the beginning of November 2018, the Israel Defense Forces aviation attacked about 150 targets in Gaza since the start of rocket and artillery shelling of Israeli cities by the Hamas group.

The gunmen’s warehouses, the Hamas warship and the building of the headquarters of the Palestinian Islamist movement in the Gaza Strip was under attack by Israeli aircraft.

The Israel Defense Forces counted about 370 missiles and artillery shells that were fired from the Gaza Strip. At the same time, about 100 missiles were intercepted and shot down by the Israeli Iron Dome missile defense system.

In response to the Israeli air raid, Hamas announced that it would launch a rocket attack on the Israeli cities of Beersheba and Ashdod - if the Israelis continue to attack Gaza.

  • The conflict between Palestinians and Israelis has been going on for decades. In 2014, 17 Palestinians died as a result of Israeli attacks on a refugee camp in the Gaza Strip, reports NSN.

  • Al-Shujiya’s area east of Gaza was reportedly bombed. First, the artillery bombarded the market located there, one of the shells hit the gas station, as a result of which the fuel tank exploded and caught fire. Later, when residents of the area who had attempted to evacuate the victims had gathered on the spot, the Israeli Air Force struck.

  • In May 2019, representatives of Israel and Palestine concluded a cease-fire agreement after the shelling of the Gaza Strip by the Israeli military. According to Reuters, the agreement was reached through the mediation of Egypt.

  • As noted, the parties agreed to "put an end to violence." At the same time, Hamas representatives also confirmed this information.

  • Shortly before this, the Israel Defense Forces attacked about 320 targets in the Gaza Strip in response to 600 rockets fired from there.

  • According to the agency, the Israeli military attacked "terrorist targets" in the Gaza Strip.

The conflict escalated against the backdrop of the approaching holy month of Ramadan and Israeli Independence Day. Also, preparations for the Eurovision Song Contest continued in Tel Aviv:

In addition, Israel and Syria exchange missile strike several times a month. On May 27, Israeli bombers attacked the launcher of the Syrian air defense system — an Israeli plane that had been carrying out a planned peace flight in the north of the country had been shot at earlier, Tel Aviv was told. At the same time, Syria TV reported that the Israeli Air Force launched a series of strikes against the military facilities of the Syrian army in the area of ​​the village of Tel Shaar, located in the province of Quneitra.

One of the key reasons for this “cool” conflict between the two Middle Eastern states is the Israeli occupation of the Golan Heights. The territory was captured by Israeli forces in the course of the Six-Day War of 1967.
