Breaking: Iran Initiates Drone Attack on Israel, IDF Confirms

breaking news

In a recent development, an Iranian official has officially acknowledged the launch of drone attacks targeting Israel.

Reports from the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) confirm the deployment of aerial drones by Iran towards Israel, indicating a potentially significant reprisal move.

According to Israel’s Channel 12 TV, the assault is anticipated to reach Israeli territories by approximately 02:00 on Sunday (00:00 GMT). Israeli military forces have been placed on heightened alert status, closely monitoring all potential targets.

Iran’s decision to launch these drones follows a vow to retaliate for the deadly attack on its consulate in Syria on April 1st, resulting in the loss of seven military personnel, including a high-ranking commander. While Iran has accused Israel of orchestrating the assault, Israel has refrained from confirming or denying its involvement.
