16th Apr 24 4:01 pm

The chief spokesman of the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) has warned Iran that they will not get off “scot-free” after their missile and drone attack on Saturday evening.

Israel is considering their military “options” which could see airstrikes on Iran or their proxies.

The Middle East is on the brink and the region could be dragged into a wider conflict and many different “scenarios” are being considered.

IDF spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari tells reporters at Julis military base, “We cannot stand still from this kind of aggression, Iran will not get [off] scot-free with this aggression.”

“We will respond in our time, in our place, in the way that we will choose,” he added.

The Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Ali Bagheri Kani has warned on Tuesday that they will respond within “seconds” if Israel counter-attacks Iran.

The Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister warned that Israel will be hit with a “resolute and hard response” if there is any military action taken against Iran.

Bagheri Kani said, “there will not be a 12- or 13-day gap between a Zionist regime move and Iran’s powerful response anymore. The Zionists must now reckon in seconds, not hours,” making reference to alleged consulate building being destroyed in an Israeli airstrike.

The Israeli Defence Force (IDF) spokesman Peter Lerner said on Monday that Israel could “strike” or “not strike” as the military are considering many “different scenarios” as they putting together a “wide range of options.”

Israel’s war cabinet met again on Monday to discuss how they will respond to Iran’s attack on Saturday evening.

Government spokesman David Mencer said at a news briefing Israel “retains all its options.”

“We reserve the right to do everything in our power, and we will do everything in our power to defend this country,” he added.

On Sunday the Israeli war cabinet approved a “powerful response” on Iranian soil and 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.

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.
