Published by on

Aharon Haliva described that he expects Tehran officials to grow more desperate amid the now months-long “anti-hijab” protests, thus the potential for lashing out by a major terror attack grows increasingly likely.

but as the pressure on Iran increases, including internal pressure, the Iranian response is much more aggressive, so we should expect much more aggressive responses in the region and in the world,” Haliva said.

Anadolu Agency/Getty Images “I am telling you that the Iranians are now considering attacking the World Cup in Qatar as well,” he said.

“The only thing holding them back is how the Qataris will react.” He issued the words Monday before a defense conference in Tel Aviv, calling the ongoing protests which have increasingly taken over university campuses and major city streets in the Islamic Republic “extremely exceptional” and now fast becoming a “civilian rebellion”.

“The death toll, the attacks on national symbols – this is very troubling for the regime, especially combined with sanctions, the existing international pressure, and the difficult economic situation,” the military intel chief described.
