Elon Musk Has Told Israel And Iran To Launch Rockets Into Space Instead Of At Each Other

Tesla CEO Elon Musk posted a message of peace on social media in response to reports that Israel had launched missiles at Iran. In a tweet published on Friday morning, Elon Musk called for peace and solidarity, saying, “We should send rockets not at each other, but rather to the stars.” 

Identified as an advocate for Israel, Musk’s November visit highlights his involvement in the area. There, he met with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Isaac Herzog. He saw the Kfar Azza kibbutz during his visit; the village was affected by violence when Hamas soldiers attacked it, starting a war that is still going on today. “It was jarring to see the scene of the massacre,” Musk said in a video chat with Netanyahu, considering the extent of the damage. 

Tensions have escalated as a result of claims from Iran’s official media about explosions in the province of Isfahan, particularly close to the Shekari Army airbase. Isfahan is important because it is the center of Iran’s nuclear program and is home to sites such as the enrichment complex at Natanz, which has been the subject of many alleged Israeli strikes. The situation is still tight despite promises on the security of nuclear sites from Iran’s Tasnim news agency. 

Iran responded by firing missiles and drones toward Israel, claiming that there had been casualties from an alleged Israeli attack on the Iranian embassy in Damascus on April 1. President Joe Biden announced that the US then placed sanctions on Iran, aimed explicitly at organizations connected to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and the nation’s missile and defense initiatives. 

Airlines such as Emirates and FlyDubai rerouted their flights to avoid Iranian airspace after the latest incident, with numerous planes passing over Iranian territory. Iran retaliated by banning commercial aircraft from Tehran and the surrounding areas. According to reports from IRNA, Iran’s state-run media, air defense systems were triggered following explosions, specifically aimed at a significant airfield located in Isfahan. 

Recent unrest necessitates diplomatic initiatives meant to ease tensions and promote stability.
