While in Israel it remains maximum alert for the threats of retaliation moved byIran, after the bombing of Tel Aviv on the consulate of the Islamic Republic a Damascusfrom Lebanon Hezbollah he threw between 40 and 50 missiles towards northern Israel, largely intercepted by the defense system Iron Dome. Not an isolated move, however, according to some independent observers: this first attack could be an attempt to limit the effectiveness of the Israeli anti-missile system and the prelude to a much more impressive offensive. According to American officials, Tehran is considering an attack with more than 100 drones and dozens of missiles directed at military targets inside the country, with Tel Aviv having difficulty defending itself from an attack of this magnitude. And the American president also seems to be of the same opinion, Joe Bidenwho said: “I don’t want to go into the merits of reliable information, but I expect Iran to try to strike Israel in the short term, sooner rather than later,” he said, asking Tehran to backtrack.

Other sources consulted by Wall Street Journal confirm that Tel Aviv is preparing for a direct attack from Iran in next 24-48 hours. Sources informed “by the Iranian leadership”, explains the US newspaper, confirm that while the attack plans are being discussed, no final decision has been made.

IN THE LAST DAYS | Israel’s raid on the Iranian consulate in Damascus, Tehran: “Cowardly crime, we will respond”. The EU: “We are alarmed”

In the morning the French Foreign Ministry invited the transalpine citizens to avoid travel to Iran, Israel, Lebanon and the Palestinian Territories, the latest in a series of warnings from the chancelleries who fear the evolution of the situation. “The situation in Iran is very tense and we are observing what is happening with apprehension and working towards a de-escalation”. A spokesperson said so of the German Foreign Ministry, at a press conference in Berlinrecalling yesterday’s conversation with the Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock with his Iranian counterpart. “A legitimate defense, with the aim of punishing the attacker, is a necessity” stated the Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian during a phone call with her German counterpart Annalena Baerbock“. The head of Tehran’s diplomacy then also held a telephone conversation with the Foreign Minister, Antonio Tajani: in the conversation, as we understand, Tajani made a strong appeal to Iran for moderation, underlining that a retaliation against Israel would provoke a counter-reaction from the Jewish State. And this could trigger an even larger and more dangerous conflict for all states in the region.

IN THE LAST DAYS | New Israeli raids in Syria: Iranian embassy building hit: 8 dead. Tehran: “Netanyahu has lost his mental balance”

“A direct attack by Iran will lead to an appropriate response from Israel” the Israeli Defense Minister warned last night in Italy Yoav Gallantin a telephone conversation – the second in a few days – with the head of the Pentagon Lloyd Austin. The two – according to an official note – discussed “preparation for an Iranian attack against the State of Israel, which could lead to an escalation in the region“. Austin, for his part, assured that Israel can count on full American support. On this occasion, in truth, Austin also complained to Gallant about the fact that Washington she had not been informed of the April 1 airstrike on the Iranian consulate building in Damascus, widely blamed on Israel. “The threat from Iran against Israel is still present, real and credible. The United States will do everything to help the Israelis defend themselves“, the spokesperson for the US National Security Council reiterated on Friday, John Kirby, in a briefing with a small group of journalists. Kirby added that the US, in recent days, has seen Israel “do what it promised to do”, regarding the opening of “further crossings for the entry of humanitarian aid into Gaza” adding that in any case “we must do more”. However, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) say they are “strongly prepared to attack and defend against any threat. We are at war and for about six months we have been at a high level of preparation – explained the army chief of staff, Herzi Halevi – The IDF continues to closely monitor what is happening in Iran and in various fields, constantly preparing to address existing and potential threats in coordination with the US military. Our forces are prepared and ready at any time and to face any scenario.”
