General Yadlin, it is never found to handle a direct confrontation with the iranian general Qasem Soleimani?
"Yes, Soleimani was the commander of the forces of the Quds active in all the countries of the Middle East in which Iran wants to impose its hegemony. We approached it in Lebanon, in Syria, we have seen in Iraq and Yemen, but its main activity against Israel was in Lebanon with Imad Mugniyah: when Mugniyah was killed in 2008, Soleimani has become essentially the chief of staff of Hassan Nasrallah and the commander of the forces of Quds in Syria".
Many describe him as a dangerous man, but a strategist intelligent, would you agree?
"he Had a strategy very precise and long-term, to oust America from Iraq, and had dirty hands the blood of thousands of american soldiers in Iraq since 2005, many sunni syrians killed by Assad and many iraqis. His strategy was to build forces for power of attorney in the whole of the Middle East: Hezbollah in Lebanon, Houthi in Yemen, militias for the Assad regime. Has created a network of proxies, and built a military infrastructure in Syria, not to fight Isis but to duplicate the model of Hezbollah against Israel in the Golan heights".
his death makes Israel more secure?
"I Think that the whole Middle East is better off. The people in Iraq are demonstrating against the influence of Iran, but now there is no Soleimani that orders to shoot at people on the street. As for Mugniyah, I do not see an iranian general who can "fill in the blank, the activities of iran in the region will be weakened".
Iran could hit Israel in retaliation?
"Everyone knows who killed Soleimani, the americans have taken the responsibility. The iranians have already attempted to attack Israel three times in the last few years and have not been successful: Israel has the best missile defense in the world, intelligence and air force able to repel an attack".
Two days ago there was a air strike in Syria against the militias supported by Iran. Israel has not commented but in the last two years, he has conducted several raids against the positions of the militia, the thread of iran in Iraq and Syria.
"The goal of Israel is to not allow the militias supported by Iran in Syria arrive at the border with Israel and the transfer of weapons to Hezbollah: this policy will continue".
The iraqi prime minister has asked Pompey to start the withdrawal of american troops from Iraq. It is a real possibility?
"The withdrawal of american troops from Iraq is a possibility if we remember that the basic policy of the president, Trump has put an end to the 'wars without end' in the Middle East. But I do not think that if there will be a withdrawal will be fast, because Iraq needs the United States, which receives millions of dollars. And then the kurds, the arabs, and even many shiites do not want America to leave Iraq, do not want to become a colony of iran".
