Matthias Schranner comments on:
The conflict between Iran and the USA in the Persian Gulf becomes more serious. First, the government in Teheran threatened to block oil transports in the strategically important Strait of Hormuz—and now, in addition, it announces maneuvers with “long-range missiles”.
The conflict between Iran and Israel is entering the next escalation level. From a negotiation perspective, the statements coming from the Israeli government are an anchor, and they are intended to force potential allies to commit quickly.
