Iran responds to Israel: missiles and drones on targets in the Golan and Negev


at Mohamed Ben Abdallah

Given for days as highly probable and promised by the Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, the Iranian response to the Israeli attack on April 1st against an Iranian embassy building in Damascus, Syria, was revealed yesterday evening, when in an air strike they were numerous senior officers and officials of the Pasdaran, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, were killed, including general Mohammad Reza Zahed, commander of operations of the al-Quds Force, his deputy Mohammad Hadi Raimi and Hussein Amir Allah, local commander of the Pasdaran. An action also condemned by Russia, defined as “unacceptable” by the Foreign Ministry.
At least 500 drones and missiles were launched in several waves by Iran on military targets in the Golan and the Negev, and according to reports from the Islamic Republic, hypersonic missiles were also fired, news not confirmed by Israel. Drones are less fast, taking several hours to reach targets a thousand kilometers away and a certain number of which have been stopped by US, French and British fighters over the skies of Iraqi Kurdistan. Israeli planes took to the skies to intercept drones over Jordan and Syria.
US President Joe Biden immediately returned to Washington, while Tehran asked the US not to intervene in order to avoid starting a dangerous escalation. The extent of the damage caused by the attack will certainly determine a broader response.
Italian Foreign Minister Antonio Tajani made it known that he had tried to dissuade his Iranian colleague Hossein Amir Abdollahian from taking action in response to the attack on April 1, and interviewed for Sky Tg24 he said it was still early to predict the evolution of the attack.
The Iranian representation at the UN stated that the “True Promise” operation, launched on the basis of article 51 of the United Nations Charter which provides for the right to react to the attack on the embassy in Damascus, is to be considered concluded, but which in the event of an Israeli reaction will be taken up with greater force.
The US has moved the Eisenhower aircraft carrier, but at the moment there are no direct actions against Iran. The war cabinet met in Israel, while Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s plane took off for an unknown destination.
The Iron Drome defense missile batteries went into operation in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, hitting drones in flight, but rockets were also launched by the Lebanese Hezbollah and the Yemeni Houthis.
The Israeli army then announced that it had destroyed 99% of the unmanned aerial vehicles and carriers, while the media reported that there was pressure from the international community on the US to ensure there is no military reaction to the attack.
In reality, the Iranian attack seems to have more of a political than military significance, so it is completely understandable that international and local powers are working to avoid escalation.
