14th Apr 24 1:10 pm

The Israeli war cabinet has approved a “powerful response” on Iranian soil and they will retaliate immediately.

An Israeli military official revealed that Israel’s Channel 12 told residents “not to go to bed yet,” as an attack on Iran is imminent.

An Israeli official has also told CNN that Israel is yet to decide if they will “break all the dishes” or take a more level headed response.

This comes after Iran fired hundreds of ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and drones towards Israel and in retaliation Israeli defence forces attack southern Lebanon on Sunday.

Iran has fired hundreds of ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and drones towards Israel and in retaliation Israeli defence forces attack southern Lebanon on Sunday.

France criticised Iran after the strike warning, “Iran has crossed a new threshold with regard to its destabilizing activities and is risking a potential military escalation.”

Senior Arab leaders are fearful that Israel could trigger a wider war across the Middle East and fear Benjamin Netanyahu’s “insane” response now the war cabinet has approved a strike on Iranian soil.

Max Abrahms, associate professor of political science at Northeastern University, has said that essentially, Iran has “declared war” on Israel.

Professor Abrahms told Northeastern Global News, “Iran has essentially declared war against Israel, and Israel is going to respond in a substantial way.

It’s possible Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will respond by targeting Iran’s nuclear facilities.”

Iran has cancelled flights until Monday as commercial airports have been closed, according to Iranian state media.

An official told NBC News, Sky News partner network, “Conventional wisdom is they won’t [retaliate], but the guy sitting in power may go insane.”

The British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak confirmed that the RAF shot down a “number” of Iranian drones and that the UK has sent “additional” warplanes to the region.

The Prime Minister said that operations are already underway in Iraq and Syria and criticised Iran for their “unnecessary escalation.”

Sunak said, “The fallout for regional stability would be hard to overstate” had Iran’s attack on Israel been successful.

“This was a dangerous and unnecessary escalation which I have condemned in the strongest terms.

“Thanks to an international co-ordinated effort, which the UK participated in, almost all of these missiles were intercepted, saving lives not just in Israel but in neighbouring countries like Jordan as well.”

In response the Iranian Foreign Minister has summoned the French, British and German ambassadors to question their “irresponsible stance” over the strike on Israel.
