Israeli Submarine Crosses Suez Canal As Direct Message To Iran
ICBPS- Israeli submarine reportedly crossed Suez Canal in ‘message’ to Iran. An Israeli submarine openly crossed the Suez Canal last week, in a show of force against Iran, The Times of Israel quoted the Kan public broadcaster on Monday night.
According to Arab intelligence confirming the reports, the IDF Navy submarine passed the Red Sea and was making its way towards the Persian Gulf.
The move was approved by Egypt, according to the report, which cited Arab intelligence sources as the submarine allegedly surfaced and faced the Persian Gulf, which lies on the other side of Saudi Arabia.
“The move was meant to “send a message” to Tehran, especially Iran‘s supreme leader Ali Khamenei” intelligence sources said.

“Vessel said to have surfaced and faced the Persian Gulf, in show of force amid threats over killing of the nuclear scientist; in similar move, US sub crosses Straight of Hormuz,” TOI reported.
The tensions between Tel Aviv and Ayatollahs in Tehran have increased dramatically in the past decade, especially following the killing of Iran’s top Nuke Bomb Developer Mohsen Fakhrizadeh on November 27.
Shortly after the incident, Tehran vowed revenge on Israel, which the regime in Iran believes is behind the killing.
Iran has threatened to attack Israel since the killing of its top Nuke Bomb Developer. Israel, in turn, responded by raising the level of alertness in its diplomatic delegations abroad, Jpost reported.
In a strikingly similar move to the Israeli submarine crossing of the Suez Canal, USS Georgia nuclear submarine, which can carry 154 Tomahawk cruise missiles and 66 special forces soldiers, crossed the Strait of Hormuz on Monday, in a show of force directed at Iran as the anniversary of the killing of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani by a US drone approached.
The US Navy usually does not disclose the presence of its submersibles around the globe.
JUST IN: #USNavy's #USSGeorgia transits #StraitofHormuz with cruisers #USSPortRoyal and #USSPhilippineSea. Georgia’s presence in @US5thFleet demonstrates the fleet's ability to operate wherever international law allows. #forcetobereckonedwith

U.S. and Israeli military officials fear [possible] attack by the Iranian regime to avenge the Qassem Soleimani, who was killed on January 3, 2020, in a U.S. drone strike near Baghdad airport in Iraq.
