This is the First Iranian-Israeli War

Prof. Itamar Rabinovich published an article in Haaretz, addressing Iran's role in the war.

"What we have been living through since October 7 is being perceived as a war between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. But it’s taking place in a broader context, primarily shaped by Iran’s effort to challenge Israel on multiple fronts. There’s already a war of attrition going on between Tehran’s proxy – Hezbollah – and Israel, and at any given moment, Iran and Hezbollah’s leadership could decide to escalate it into a full-scale war."
