Israel on Alert for Attacks by Iran
The IDF air defense units and Israeli embassies around the world were on alert Tuesday amidst warnings that Iran may be preparing to launch attacks similar to the strikes on Saudi Arabian oil facilities earlier this month and/or terrorist attacks against Israel and Israeli or Jewish targets. "Iran wants to develop precision-guided missiles that can hit any target in Israel within 5-10 meters. It's doing it," Netanyahu said Monday evening during an event at the Jewish Agency.  "Iran wants to use Iran, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Yemen as bases to attack Israel with statistical missiles and precision-guided missiles. That is a great, great danger."

Officials in Ankara told Defense News this week that Russia and Turkey are in an “advanced stage of negotiations” on a deal which could see NATO member Turkey buy the Russian-made Su-35 fighter aircraft. The negotiations, if finalized, would mark another stage in the shift of Turkey away from the West and towards Moscow following the procurement earlier this year of the Russian-built S-400 air-defense system by the Turkish military.

Protests Continue in Lebanon and Iraq
Street protests in Lebanon and Iraq continued on Monday despite increasing clashes between protesters and security forces and Iranian-backed militias in both countries. In Lebanon, roads were blocked and schools, banks and many businesses were closed for the last week, leading a Central Bank official to warn that the country is on the verge of economic collapse. In Iraq, the Army and counter-terrorism police have been deployed in Baghdad and other cities to crack down on a growing protest movement, with reports of a clash in the city of Karbala overnight Monday which left several people dead and wounded.
