- According to India, the Israeli war against Hamas won't end until the Sunni Salafi group's leaders and members are all killed in Gaza.
- The Arab street mood is being stirred up by Islamist countries like Turkey, Qatar, and Syria in the name of Ummah.
Defence Minister Rajnath Singh told the commanders of the Indian Army to “expect the unexpected” after Hamas’s attack on Israel on October 7. At the same time, national security planners are looking into the terror attack and the IDF’s ground operation in the Gaza strip.
It is known that the Indian Army has made emergency purchases worth several thousand crores in two stages to get anti-drone systems, logistics UAVs, loiter ammunition, and ground sensors as part of “Aatmanirbhar Bharat” to protect India’s borders from asymmetric attacks and learn how to stop them. Terrorist groups from Pakistan are operating in Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir, but people are working to stop them from coming in from across the Line of Control and defeat the jihadists in Jammu and Kashmir.
During last month’s Army Commanders’ Conference, the terror attack by Hamas in Gaza and the barrage of rocket attacks on Israeli cities were talked about. Small groups from the armed forces, intelligence, and the Ministry of External Affairs are studying the start of the war and how it will affect the future of the Middle East.
Along these lines, the Indian Navy also checked all the ships on the western coast to make sure they were radio-tagged and severely punished those that did not have the right paperwork. The Navy is doing everything it can to scan India’s 7,500 km coastline and make sure that the 2008 attack doesn’t happen again.
This is happening in the background of the 26/11 terror attack in Mumbai. It is important to remember that Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) terrorists from Pakistan attacked the Chabad House at Nariman Point and killed six Jews after torturing them. Attacks were made on the Nariman House after Pakistani terrorists killed innocent people at the Leopold Café. Pakistan has not punished any of the LeT terrorists or ISI bad guys fifteen years after the attack.
According to India, the Israeli war against Hamas won’t end until the Sunni Salafi group’s leaders and members are all killed in Gaza. Iran will join the war if Shia Hezbollah starts a front in the north with Tel Aviv. This is the bigger worry.
The Arab street mood is being stirred up by Islamist countries like Turkey, Qatar, and Syria in the name of Ummah. If that happens, the whole Middle East will sign. In reality, Qatar is home to the Muslim Brotherhood, which is illegal in Egypt, the UAE, and Saudi Arabia. It is also where Hamas leaders like Ismail Haniyeh hide out, just like Taliban leaders did in the past.
