Multiple “important” targets have been struck, the Islamic Republic’s Revolutionary Guard Corps has said

A large-scale missile and drone attack against Israel has been a success, Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps has said in a statement published by IRNA news agency. The Islamic Republic’s military managed to “hit and destroy” some “important military targets,” it added, without providing any further details.

Iran launched a major air strike against Israel in response to what it called “numerous crimes” supposedly committed by West Jerusalem, including an alleged Israeli attack on the Iranian consulate in the Syrian capital of Damascus. The attack that took place on April 1 killed seven officers of the IRGC’s Quds Force, including two generals.
The Islamic Republic’s attack involved more than 100 drones, Israeli and Western media reported. The Israel Defense Force said they were tracking the incoming unmanned aerial vehicles and were planning to intercept them mid-air, according to the local media.

West Jerusalem has not confirmed any damage resulting from the Iranian strike so far. The only person injured in the attack so farwas a 10-year-old boy in southern Israel, the local media reported.

In its statement, the IRGC also explicitly warned the US that “any support” Washington could provide to Israel in “harming Iran’s interests” would be met with a “decisive” response by the Islamic Republic’s military. Tehran also considers Washington “responsible for the evil actions” of West Jerusalem, the statement added. Iran also warned its neighbors against assisting the US or Israel in their potential attacks against the Islamic Republic. Tehran would give a “proportional response” to such actions as well, it said.

In the wake of the attack, the Israeli media reported that West Jerusalem was planning massive retaliation to the Iranian strike. TV Channel 12 said, citing a “senior Israeli official” as a “unprecedented response” to the attack is in the works. Israel’s Culture and Sports Minister Miki Zohar also stated that West Jerusalem “received broad international legitimacy tonight to strike Iran with unprecedented force.” (RT)
