Iran carried out its first-ever direct attack on Israel, the EU member’s close ally, at the weekend, launching hundreds of drones and missiles which the Israeli military said were nearly all intercepted.

The attack was in response to a strike on the Iranian consulate in Damascus on April 1, which killed seven Revolutionary Guards including two generals and was widely blamed on Israel.

“I have decided today to summon the Iranian ambassador. The Czech diplomacy made it clear to Iran that it has crossed all the lines by attacking Israel,” Lipavsky said on X, formerly Twitter.

“The Iranian regime is endangering the security situation in the region,” he added.
