Minister of Defense Yoav Gallant, speaking at a conference on Monday evening, revealed a new strategy of the IRGC naval forces – constructing “floating terror bases.” In his discussion, Gallant also addressed the measures required to contend with Iran’s regional aggression and the threat posed by the Iranian nuclear program.
Gallant said the Iranian plan “is a concerning, ‘pirate policy’. The floating terror bases are an extension of Iran’s ongoing maritime terrorism, as seen in its actions in the Persian Gulf and Arabian Sea. This is a structured plan designed to threaten trade and flight routes – both military and civilian – and to create a permanent threat in the maritime arena.”
Gallant added: “The way to confront Iranian terrorism in the air, at sea, and on land is through international cooperation and the creation of coalitions.”
Israel is still trying to secure international cooperation in opposing the Iran nuclear “deal.” With that said, what kind of cooperation does Gallant think can be created for this?
