Iran launched a drone attack against Israel, announced the Israeli army, and was later confirmed by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). The aggression had been anticipated by the President of the United States, Joe Biden, who warned that the attack would come “sooner rather than later”.

“Iran launched drones from its territory against the State of Israel,” said Israeli army spokesperson Daniel Hagari on television shortly after 11:00 PM local time. Minutes later, the forces confirmed they had identified “more than 100 Iranian drones,” though it was not clarified if ballistic missiles were also launched.

“This is a serious and dangerous escalation. We are monitoring the threat in the airspace,” added Hagari, stating that Israel will work “closely” with the United States and its allies in the region to “intercept Iran’s drones.”

On the other hand, Iranian state television announced that the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps launched an attack with “drones and missiles” against Israel.

“In response to the numerous crimes committed by the Zionist regime, including the attack on the consular section of the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Damascus and the martyrdom of a group of commanders and military advisors from our country in Syria, the air force of the Aerospace Force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps fired dozens of missiles and drones at specific targets within the occupied territories,” stated state television.
