Iranian Attacks  

Tehran announced today, Sunday, the end of the military attacks launched by Iranian forces against the “Israeli” occupation in response to the bombing of its consulate in the Syrian capital, Damascus.

Iran announced, at dawn on Sunday, the launch of dozens of drones and missiles towards the Zionist entity.

 Major General Mohammad Bagheri, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces, said in statements reported by the Iranian News Agency (IRNA): “We have no intention to continue the operation against Israel,” and that the operation has ended from our point of view." Bagheri confirmed that the operation carried out byIran was a punishment, warning that Iran's response to any action would be much greater.

He added: “If the Zionist entity carries out another operation, our response will be more comprehensive, and we have tried to limit our operations to punishment only, and population centers were not targeted, and we are certainly ready to defend our land.”

On the other hand, the occupation army announced, in a statement on Sunday, that it had thwarted the attack, confirming that it intercepted 99% of the drones and missiles that were launched, with the help of allies led by the United States, according to what was reported by the “France 24” website.

The Iranian and Israeli accounts differed about the damage of the attack, as the official Iranian News Agency (IRNA) reported that the largest air base in the Negev was severely damaged after Iranian missiles hit it at night, and state television said that half of the missiles launched had successfully hit their target. .

As for the occupation army, it confirmed minor damage to the base, and said in a statement: Out of more than 120 ballistic missiles, a very small number penetrated the “Israeli” border, landed at an air force base in Nafatim (south) and caused minor damage to a facility.

Hebrew media reported that “Israel” incurred about $1.5 billion to intercept the Iranian attack last night.

Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper quoted Ram Aminach, the former economic advisor to the Israeli Chief of Staff, as saying: Last night’s attack cost between 4 and 5 billion shekels (between 1.08 and 1.35 billion dollars), and he explained that the cost includes only confronting the marches and missiles. Without including field losses, which the army previously announced were minor, according to the Al Jazeera website. net".

Arab and international responses to the Iranian attack

Several Western countries, led by America and Britain, denounced the Iranian attack on the Zionist entity, and were quick to express their support for “Tel Aviv” after the Iranian Revolutionary Guard announced that it had launched dozens of drones and missiles towards specific targets in the “Israeli” occupation state.

While Arab countries called for restraint to spare the region and its peoples from the dangers of escalation and its effects.

Jordan confirmed its readiness to confront threats after monitoring and confronting flying objects that entered the Kingdom's airspace.

Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Al-Safadi explained, according to the official Jordanian News Agency, that some flying objects that entered our airspace last night (Saturday) were dealt with and confronted to prevent them from endangering the safety of our citizens and residential and populated areas.

In a statement on Sunday, the Hamas movement considered the operation carried out by Iran against the occupying state a natural right and a deserved response to the crime of targeting the Iranian consulate in Damascus.

 Hamas stated that it affirms the region's countries and peoples' natural right to self-defense against Zionist attacks. Hamas urged the Arab and Islamic nations, the free people of the world, and resistance forces in the region and around the world to continue supporting the "Al-Aqsa Flood" and the Palestinian people's right to freedom and independence, as well as the establishment of a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital.

 In response to the Iranian reaction, "Israel" has requested that the UN Security Council hold an emergency meeting today, Sunday, according to an Anadolu Agency report.
