Rumours of war: Insider says Israel to attack Iran August 20
On 15 August, insider, historian and political scientist Pierre Piccinin tweeted (in Belgian) “Selon mes sources OTAN, Israël attaquerait l’Iran le 20. Le monde se détournerait de la Syrie et le grand massacre pourrait y commencer.”
To anyone who doesn’t speak Belgian, the words “Israel” and “massacre” might stick out, but after translating the whole sentence, something more broadly significant begins to take shape.
Consider the following translation of the first part of that sentence (in English):
“According to my NATO sources, Israel will attack Iran on August 20.”
The second part is equally compelling:
“The world would not be focused on Syria anymore and the big massacre will begin.”
