However, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has clarified that there is no evidence of Iran’s involvement in the attacks on Israel.
According to Blinken, this attack by Hamas may be an attempt to disrupt Saudi Arabia’s growing relationship with Israel.
The US secretary of state has denied Iranian involvement, but the powerful Iranian-backed militant group Hezbollah says it fired guided rockets and artillery at three posts at Sheba Farms in “solidarity” with the Palestinian people.
On the other hand, America has also announced to send its war fleet to help Israel. The recent conflict between Israel and Hamas has seen a significant escalation, with Hamas launching a major attack on Israel, resulting in casualties on both sides.
