Israel Attacks Two Major Natural Gas Pipelines In Iran

Israel recently launched covert attacks on two Iranian natural gas pipelines, disrupting energy supplies in multiple provinces across the terrorist-rampant country.

Israel’s decision signaled an escalation in the shadow war between Israel and Iran, according to The New York Times.

“This shows the covert networks operating in Iran have expanded their target list and advanced beyond just military and nuclear sites,” a Middle Eastern security analyst, Shahin Modarres, told the newspaper. “It’s a major challenge and reputation blow for Iran’s intelligence and security agencies.”

Although Israel has launched military attacks on Iran before, the country’s recent attack targeted Iran’s energy infrastructure.

“The level of impact was very high because these are two significant pipelines going south to north. We have never seen anything like this in scale and scope,” a senior energy analyst at Kpler, Homayoun Falakshahi, told the New York Times.

The Daily Caller noted that Israel’s attacks could come in the form of retaliation since Hamas, a terrorist organization backed by Israel, invaded the Jewish State on Oct. 7, 2023, killing more than 1,200 people while taking over 200 hostages.

Houthi terrorists in Yemen, also supported by Iran’s government, have also carried out numerous attacks against Israeli-linked merchant vessels in the Red Sea.

Modarres said Israel’s pipeline attack in Iran dealt a major “reputation blow” for the country’s “intelligence and security agencies.”

Iran’s oil minister acknowledged the attacks but did not blame Israel, saying the ultimate goal in conducting such an operation was to damage Iran’s energy infrastructure, according to Business Insider.

“The enemy’s plan was to completely disrupt the flow of gas in winter to several main cities and provinces in our country,” Iran’s oil minister, Javad Owji, told Iran-based news outlets.

Considering that Iran supports Hamas, Israel’s conflict with the terrorist-rampant country has worsened.

In January 2024, reports indicated that Iran had accused the Jewish State of killing a spy chief and three of its high-ranking Revolutionary Guards in Syria. Since Israel has a policy allowing it to decline confirming or denying allegations of assassinations or strikes against Iran, the country refused to comment at the time.
