BREAKING! Israel Under Fire from Iranian Missiles, 100 Attack Drones

Iran has launched a wide-scale aerial assault against Israel in an unprecedented revenge mission, threatening to push the Middle East to the brink of a regional war.

Israel reports the Islamic regime in Tehran has unleashed more than 100 attack drones as well as ballistic missiles. Rocket sirens and booms could be heard across the entire country, including Jerusalem.  It is unclear if the booms are an incoming attack or the sound of interceptions in the air.

Israel’s Magen David Adom ambulance service reported a 10-year-old boy from a Bedouin town is in serious condition after being wounded by shrapnel following the interception of a drone. 

US officials say the US military has shot down Iranian drones headed for the Jewish state. Britain’s Royal Air Force jets “will intercept any airborne attacks within range of our existing missions, as required,” the country’s Ministry of Defense says. 

IDF Spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari says in a video statement that Israeli fighter jets are in the air ready to counter any attack.  

“A short while ago, Iran launched missiles from its territory toward the territory of the State of Israel,” Hagari says, adding that Israel’s air defense system is “fully operational and is intercepting threats wherever required, even at this very moment. ”

“At this time, numerous IAF planes are in the air, ready to counter any threat,” Hagari says. “You may hear explosions from interceptions or debris falling. Since there are a variety of threats, the alerts may be issued across wide areas.”

Iran’s mission to the United Nations says in a post on X it has “concluded” its attack on Israel and warned the US to stay out of the conflict. 

“Iran’s military action was in response to the Zionist regime’s aggression against our diplomatic premises in Damascus,” the post says. “The matter can be deemed concluded. However, should the Israeli regime make another mistake, Iran’s response will be considerably more severe. It is a conflict between Iran and the rogue Israeli regime, from which the U.S. MUST STAY AWAY!

President Joe Biden pledges to support Israel in the wake of the Iranian attack. 

 “I just met with my national security team for an update on Iran’s attacks against Israel. Our commitment to Israel’s security against threats from Iran and its proxies is ironclad.”

Iran had vowed to punish Israel for an April 1 airstrike on an Iranian consular building in Damascus, Syria that killed two top Iranian generals and several other military leaders. While Iran blames Israel for the attack, Israel has never commented on it.  

This is the first time Iran has ever directly attacked Israel, typically choosing to target the Jewish state using its terrorist proxy groups, Hezbollah and Hamas.

Israel had anticipated the assault and made plans for defense, but it’s unclear at this point if the Israeli Defense Force has been able to stop every missile.
