London, 18 May 2019 – (Tactics Institute) – Tactics Institute For Security And Counter Terrorism warns of the potential for terrorist attacks to be carried out against Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates as tension between United States and Iran escalates. The institute urges the US to refrain from using force against Iran and calls for immediate talks to settle any differences and avoid war.

The Institute warns that Iranian proxies in the Gulf could retaliate against both Saudi Arabia and the UAE if there is any escalation with the US. Suspected Iranian attacks against Saudi-Emirati strategic targets last week suggests that further attacks in the Persian-Arab Gulf against commercial targets are possible.

The Houthis’ use of Balastic missiles against Saudi Arabia is expected to escalate and they are likely to target strategic sites in the kingdom. It is also possible that terrorist attacks could be launched from within in the eastern province where a majority of Shia groups are allied to Iran.

The Tactics Institute argues that, in light of these factors, there is an urgent need to settle the US-Iranian differences through talks sponsored by the Europeans Union with regard to the nuclear programme and Iran’s alleged funding of terrorist groups in the region.

The security of the entire region and beyond would be at risk if the United States pursued a path of war against Iran.

A war against Iran has long been a demand of the some countries in the region and was never an American choice, although some hawkish figures in the White House are now pushing for a full scale war with Iran. This is frightening step that will ultimately plunge the region into chaos that will inevitably impact to European and American interests.
