Two top Israeli security analysts believe the death of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani in a U.S. drone strike was a significant blow to Iran’s Islamic regime.

The Algemeiner, which covers the Middle East and Israel, reported the experts believe Tehran has little appetite for direct conflict with the United States.

Avi Melamed, the president and CEO of Inside the Middle East: Intelligence Perspectives, calling the killing of Soleimani “a shock wave that ripples through the Middle East” and “significantly disrupts Iran’s goal of regional superiority.”
