Israel-Iran war near? What is happening and possible consequences

Will there be a war between Israel and Iran? A nightmare more than a question, given that a possible direct military clash between the two countries could generate a global conflict without forgetting the atomic nightmare.
On Saturday 7 October Hamas launched an unprecedented attack on Israel, which responded by declaring a state of war and targeting the Gaza strip with some areas literally razed to the ground: the current toll speaks of 1,400 Israeli deaths and 2,600 Palestinians who however would have a thousands missing under the rubble.
Due to the methods of the attack launched by Hamas, the finger was immediately pointed at Iran, accused of being the deus ex machina of the operation but, at the moment, no evidence has been found in this regard.
For days, Israel has massed its troops along the borders of the Gaza Strip, preparing a land offensive to resolve the Hamas issue once and for all.
Given international pressure and threats from Arab countries, the Israelis are delaying the operation to evacuate as many civilians as possible: over 600,000 Palestinians have abandoned the territory ready to be invaded in the last few hours.
Despite this slowdown, fears of the war spreading to Iran are becoming increasingly concrete, while in the North the clashes between Israel and Lebanon have intensified; furthermore, in recent days, the Israelis have bombed the airports of Damascus and Aleppo in response to some rockets launched from Syria.
Also considering the conflict in Ukraine which has been going on for 600 days and which sees a superpower like Russia involved, also by virtue of the latest news coming from the United States everything would suggest a possible imminent outbreak of a world war.

“If apartheid, Israel's war crimes and genocide are not stopped immediately – Iran's mission to the United Nations tweeted -, the situation could spiral out of control and cause far-reaching consequences, the responsibility of which lies on the United Nations, on the Security Council and on the states that are leading the Council towards a dead end." This is a clear stance taken by Iran, which came shortly before the senior intelligence official Mohammad Akiki was seriously injured following an attack in Tehran: in this case, all suspicions would instead be directed towards the intelligence Israeli.
In the same hours, the Wall Street Journal reported that the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps had moved some of its members stationed in Syria towards the Israeli border; again in the US, national security advisor Jake Sullivan was even more direct: “We cannot rule out that Iran chooses to directly engage in some way.
We must prepare for every possible unforeseen event." As proof of the White House's fears about Iran's involvement in this war, there is the fact that the US is sending a second aircraft carrier to the eastern Mediterranean after the Ford as a "deterrence against hostile actions towards Israel".
The consequences of an Israel-Iran war If Washington's fears prove to be well-founded and if we really could soon see a war between Iran and Israel, the consequences could be catastrophic if not apocalyptic.
To be venial, the first consequence would be a surge in the price of oil and gas given that the entire Middle East would be plunged into chaos: high bills and expensive fuel could deal the final blow to our GDP, which is already significantly downsized compared to forecasts.
from a few months ago.
Inflation, however, would become a secondary problem if the US were to come to the aid of its friend Israel; a war also by the United States against Iran at that point could move Tehran's friends, namely Russia, China – Beijing in recent hours has warned that Israel is going "beyond self-defense" – and North Korea.
With the Ukrainian front still open, we would find ourselves with five nuclear powers – the USA, Russia, China, Israel and North Korea, while Iran would not have such weapons despite having resumed its uranium enrichment program – at war with each other them, with Italy which could be called upon to do its part in the event of the involvement of all of NATO.
Perhaps we are not well aware of the risks that the whole world would be running if diplomacy, as soon as possible, were not to gain the upper hand over weapons.
