Iran’s Malign Hand Behind the Scenes - Analysis

The pictures coming out of Tehran the last few days went a long way towards explaining events in the South of Israel. The Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s leader Ziyad al-Nakhalah’s met on Wednesday, August 3, with Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabollahian. On Thursday, it was Nakhalah meeting with Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi.
