We’ve witnessed Iran-backed Houthis launching drone attacks in Israel; Iran-backed Hezbollah escalating its missile fire into northern Israel, Israel responding by bombarding southern Lebanon; increased attacks on U.S. bases in Syria and Iraq; Israeli strikes on Syria; deteriorating relations between Israel and Saudi Arabia, Israel and the Palestinian Authority, Israel and Egypt, and more.
