BREAKING: Iran Launches Massive Drone Attack On Israel Despite US Warnings

 Iran has launched a massive drone attack on Israel despite US warnings.

 

NaijaOnPoint Nigeria reports that the Israeli defence forces said yesterday that Iran had launched drones toward Tel Aviv; an attack that the U.S. and Israel had warned was possible amid escalating tensions between the two countries.

This Nigeria news platform understands that the IDF spokesman Daniel Hagari told reporters that Israel was tracking the threat in its airspace, noting that drones fired from Iran would take several hours to reach Israel.

 

 

The White House confirmed the attack, issuing a statement from National Security Council spokesperson Adrienne Watson that said, “Iran has begun an airborne attack against Israel.”

“President Biden is being regularly updated on the situation by his national security team and will meet with them this afternoon at the White House,” the statement from Watson read, adding: “This attack is likely to unfold over a number of hours.”

President Biden decided to cut his weekend visit to Delaware short, returning to the White House yesterday to meet with his national security team amid growing concerns about an imminent attack on Israel by Iran.

The Iran attack followed Israel’s recent attack on the Iranian embassy in Syria which killed seven Iranian military advisers.

 

On Friday, Biden said he expected Iran to attack “sooner than later,” issuing a one-word warning to officials in Tehran: “Don’t.”

“We are devoted to the defense of Israel,” the president added. “We will support Israel and help defend Israel, and Iran will not succeed.” The U.S. has taken steps in recent days to protect Americans in Israel and prepare U.S. troops and warships in the region to defend Israel in the event of a direct attack.

 

With the latest news out of Israel on Saturday, it appears that Iran has ignored Biden’s warning. Here’s a look at how we got here, and what could happen next.

 

Meanwhile, NaijaOnPoint Nigeria reports that  President of the United States of America, Joe Biden has vowed that his country’s commitment to defend Israel against Iran was “ironclad”.

 

Biden’s pledge of support to Israel at the White House, intended as a deterrent, came a few hours after Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, repeated a threat to strike back against Israel over the Damascus bombing that killed 12 people, including Gen Mohammad Reza Zahedi, a senior figure in Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, and six other guard members.

 

“When they attacked our consulate area, it was like they attacked our territory,” Khamenei said, in remarks broadcast by Iranian state TV.

 

“The evil regime must be punished, and it will be punished,” he added.

 

Israel’s foreign minister, Israel Katz, responded in a post on the X social media platform, vowing that: “If Iran attacks from its territory, Israel will respond and attack in Iran.”

 

Biden’s pledge to Israel on the White House lawn, in a joint appearance with the Japanese prime minister, Fumio Kishida, appeared to be a response to that warning, insisting the US would not stay on the sidelines.

 

“We also want to address the Iranian threat to launch a significant – they’re threatening to launch a significant attack in Israel,” Biden said.

 

“As I told Prime Minister Netanyahu, our commitment to Israel’s security against these threats from Iran and its proxies is ironclad.

 

“Let me say it again, ironclad. We’re gonna do all we can to protect Israel’s security.”
