    Iran Launches Attack Against Israel with Long-range Drones

    Report: Iran Launches Attack Against Israel with Long-range Drones

    https://www.breitbart.com/middle-eas...-range-drones/

    JOEL B. POLLAK 13 Apr 2024

    AMNUN, northern Israel — Iran launched drones against Israel on Saturday that are en route, though they may take hours to arrive, according to Israeli media sources.

    The attack is supposedly in retaliation for an Israeli airstrike on April 1 that eliminated seven senior Iranian military officials, including two generals, in Damascus, Syria. Iran has been using its terrorist proxies to attack Israel for decades, and accelerated those attacks after the Hamas invasion of October 7.

    In anticipation of the attack, Israel’s Home Front Command canceled school for the next two days, and ordered demonstrations in favor of the hostages still in Gaza — a Saturday night tradition in much of the country — to disperse. Other large gatherings were also banned.

    A military briefing scheduled with Breitbart News for Sunday morning was also abruptly canceled due to the ongoing attack.

    It is not clear whether Israel’s aerial defense system will be able to manage the drone attack, and whether Israel will — as promised — attack Iranian territory in response.

    Fighter jets were heard overhead in the northern Galilee on Saturday evening.

    The drone attack could mark a dramatic escalation in a conflict that has been fueled for three-and-a-half decades by Iranian radicalism against the West.

    Update: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a statement:

    Citizens of Israel,

    In recent years, and especially in recent weeks, Israel has been preparing for a direct attack by Iran.

    Our defensive systems are deployed; we are ready for any scenario, both defensively and offensively. The State of Israel is strong. The IDF is strong. The public is strong.

    We appreciate the US standing alongside Israel, as well as the support of Britain, France and many other countries.

    We have determined a clear principle: Whoever harms us, we will harm them. We will defend ourselves against any threat and will do so level-headedly and with determination.

    Citizens of Israel, I know that you also are also level-headed. I call on you to follow the directives of IDF Home Front Command.

    Together we will stand and with G-d’s help – together we will overcome all of our enemies.


    Israel Defense Forces Spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari issued a statement describing a single drone launched by Iran, from its own territory. Israel has said that any attack from Iranian territory would result in an attack on Iran.

    The neocons are finally getting their war with Iran. Hope they're grateful to Israel for the excuse. And I hope they say thank you while there's still an Israel to thank.

    The war is going to back fire on NeoCons that wanted it.
    Its going to bite them in the behind.

    Iran today isn't Today's Iraq.

    They waited several years to late.

    So according to the un elected Prime Minster of UK.
    Iran has no right to respond after the Israelis had attacked and killed several people on the Iranian embassy in Syria.

    Looks like almost everything fired was shot down. It almost seems like this was a way for Iran to save face about their embassy getting attacked. They announce an attack and send some slow movers that they know will get intercepted.

    Iran has begun an airborne attack against Israel. President Biden is being regularly updated on the situation by his national security team and will meet with them this afternoon at the White House. His team is in constant communication with Israeli officials as well as other partners and allies. This attack is likely to unfold over a number of hours. President Biden has been clear: our support for Israel’s security is ironclad. The United States will stand with the people of Israel and support their defense against these threats from Iran.

    I'd be surprised if Iran was able to legitimately inflict any harm on any nation actually capable of defending themselves.

    But regardless, Izrael has been dying for an excuse to attack Iran, essentially the only "hostile" nation left in the Middle East.

    I disagree. They have some serious cruise missles. Enough at once could overwhelm Israel's air defenses.

    This seems more like a measured response designed to avoid further escalation.

    That was also reported on Fox News so I'd guess it's legit.

    I had to look up the difference:

    According to the Federation of American Scientists, a ballistic missile is one that has a ballistic trajectory over most of its flight path. What that means is that once the missile burns up the fuel that propels it, the missile keeps moving, the same way that a bullet does after it's been fired out of a gun. Once the fuel is gone, the missile's direction can't be altered. It follows a path determined by the speed of its launch and the force of gravity trying to pull it back toward the Earth's surface. Eventually, gravity guides the missile — and its payload, which might be an explosive, a chemical or biological weapon, or a nuclear device — down toward its target.

    Ballistic missiles are different than cruise missiles. Cruise missiles are self-propelled for the majority of their time in the air, flying in a relatively straight line and at lower altitudes thanks to a rocket propellant. Think of a ballistic missile's flight path as a large arc up and back down again, while that of a cruise missile — fired from a warship, for instance — is closer to a straight line.

    A slight correction: They have been dying to get an excuse to have the United States attack Iran.

    US/EU during the Balkan war had no issues supporting terror groups in Bosnia. The US/UK had no issues supporting Sunni Jihadist Rebel Groups in Syria.

    Ground reports seem to indicate that the death toll was likely low, but that the strikes were broad and effective.

    However, U.S. media seems to be downplaying the the severity indicating a preference that they'd like Israel to not respond. Word on the street is Biden called Bibi and asked as much.

    However, Israeli media is telegraphing "unprecedented" response. Iran in turn promises "a greater slap" should that be the case.

    So still looks escalatory, with U.S. going "come on guys"....

    Hard to say who is sincere. Can only watch and wait.

    Biden told Bibi U.S. won't support an Israeli counterattack on Iran
    https://www.axios.com/2024/04/14/bid...s-wont-support
    {Barak Ravid | 13 April 2024}

    President Biden told Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu during a call on Saturday that the U.S. won't support any Israeli counterattack against Iran, a senior White House official told Axios.

    Why it matters: Biden and his senior advisers are highly concerned an Israeli response to Iran's attack on Israel would lead to a regional war with catastrophic consequences, U.S.officials said.

    • Iran launched attack drones and missiles against Israel on Saturday night local time in retaliation for an airstrike in Syria that killed a top Iranian general.
    • "More than 200 drones, cruise missiles and ballistic missiles were fired from Iran," IDF spokesperson Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari said. Most of the threats were intercepted outside of Israeli airspace, he said.
    • A U.S. defense official earlier said U.S. forces in the region shot down Iranian-launched drones targeting Israel.

    Behind the scenes: Biden told Netanyahu the joint defensive efforts by Israel, the U.S. and other countries in the region led to the failure of the Iranian attack, according to the White House official.

    • "You got a win. Take the win," Biden told Netanyahu, according to the official.
    • The official said that when Biden told Netanyahu that the U.S. will not participate in any offensive operations against Iran and will not support such operations, Netanyahu said he understood.
    • U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin spoke on Saturday with his Israeli counterpart Yoav Gallant and asked that Israel notify the U.S. ahead of any response against Iran, a senior Israeli official said.

    What they're saying: Biden said in a statement after the call that the U.S. military moved aircraft and ballistic missile defense destroyers to the region over the course of the past week, which helped Israel take down nearly all of the incoming drones and missiles from Iran, Yemen, Syria and Iraq.

    • "I told Prime Minister Netanyahu that Israel demonstrated a remarkable capacity to defend against and defeat even unprecedented attacks — sending a clear message to its foes that they cannot effectively threaten the security of Israel," Biden said.

    What to watch: Biden said he is going to hold a call on Sunday with the G7 leaders to coordinate a united diplomatic response to Iran's attack.

    • "My team will engage with their counterparts across the region. And we will stay in close touch with Israel's leaders. And while we have not seen attacks on our forces or facilities today, we will remain vigilant to all threats and will not hesitate to take all necessary action to protect our people," Biden said.

    Editor's note: This story has been updated to clarify that Biden told Netanyahu he won't support an Israeli counterattack against Iran. It has also been corrected to reflect that Lloyd Austin is U.S. Secretary of Defense, not Secretary of State.
