The Israel Defense Forces have received instructions from the government to prepare for the possible US military strike against Iran. This could happen before incumbent President Donald Trump leaves office, Axios writes, citing senior Israeli officials.

"But because senior Israeli officials are expecting a" very sensitive period "before Biden's inauguration on January 20," the newspaper notes.
The measures to be taken by the IDF are related to a possible retaliatory strike by Iran against Israel directly or through the forces that are in Syria, Gaza, and Lebanon.
Prior to that, it was reported that the United States was uniting its armies in Europe and Africa. This will enhance the Pentagon's ability to address African and European strategic and operational challenges.
