US Senator Lindsey Graham has demanded that Iran pay a price for its support of Hamas by launching a coordinated military campaign against Iran’s infrastructure.
Sen. Lindsey Graham of the United Nations made a controversial statement on Wednesday, urging Israel and the United States to launch military operations against Iran.
He was questioned about whether he thought the US and Israel should “bomb Iran even in the absence of direct evidence of their involvement” in the most recent attack on Israel by the Palestinian Hamas forces during an interview with CNN. “Yeah,” was the senator from the Republican party’s reaction, restating his position.
Graham continued by urging a cooperative military action against Iran’s infrastructure and emphasized that Iran should be held accountable in the event that any stated “hostages” taken are injured.
He declared, “I think if there was a war with Iran, we would win,” demonstrating his faith in the prowess of the US military.
He also warned that if the conflict between Israel and Hamas escalates, he will hold Iran responsible and that Iran needs to understand that there will be a heavy price to pay.
The lawmaker made these remarks in the midst of an ongoing conflict that has claimed the lives of 1,300 Israelis and 1,200 Palestinians.
Hamas initiated an attack in response to events in Jerusalem, and Israel launched its operation against Hamas. The conflict has raised questions about Iran’s role in the region, as Iran supports Hamas with weapons and financial aid.
Additionally, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi and Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman engaged in a significant 45-minute dialogue, drawing international attention. They primarily discussed the pressing issue of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and emphasized the need to end war crimes against the Palestinian people.
