Israel-Hamas Conflict: Iran launches missiles, 200 attack helicopters as US warships get closer to Israel

The Army Ground Forces of Iran have launched locally-developed missiles amid two days of large-scale war games as Israeli and Palestinian conflict persist.

Iran has vowed to deal with the “threats” of the intensifying Hamas-Israel conflict as a US carrier strike group inches closer to Israel.

Iranian forces have begun large-scale military drills amid tensions with Israel.

Bombs that can blow up both fixed and moving targets within a range of ten kilometres are also being tested, as well as attack helicopters.

The choppers launched missiles in the dark and destroyed the pretend enemy using night vision systems.

According to the Iranian media, Commander-in-Chief of the Iranian Army Abdolrahim Mousavi said, “We are always ready to deal with threats.”

He explained that the exercises were intended to determine the army’s capabilities and promote the country’s “defence and combat authority” in the face of “upcoming threats”.

It would appear the US’ carrier strike group USS Dwight D Eisenhower has also now entered the Mediterranean, according to various ship trackers.

The ships were dispatched to ensure the current conflict does not expand, but the immense size of the fleet brings a significant amount of power to a region already bolstered by an unknown number of US submarines, military ships, planes, and troops.

Meanwhile, fears continue to mount that Iran-backed militias are preparing to unite and invade Israel after a sinister message appeared on the Lebanese-Israeli border.

A chilling mural of terrorist groups including Hamas and Lebanese militant group Hezbollah was this week painted on Lebanese side of the wall.

Israel considers Hezbollah to be an even bigger threat than Hamas due to it being heavily armed with weapons supplied by Iran.

The terrorist group has already vowed to join the war in support of Hamas “when the time comes”.

However, a former government adviser warned that Lebanon will be bombed “back to the Stone Age” if Hezbollah unleashes missiles and drones into Israel.
