U.S. radar system deployed in Israel a first

The radar deployment will have historical significance: the first American base on Israeli territory.

Israel has always had reservations about such a possibility and preferred to "defend itself by itself" and retain maximum freedom of action. . . .

In the current circumstances, the radar deployment, planned to take place in the coming months, has two possible meanings.

One: a signal to Israel not to attack Iran. . . .

The second meaning is less likely, but should not be ignored: The United States is planning to attack Iran, or to back an Israeli strike, and it is preparing Israel's defenses against a possible Iranian response.
