Israel reserves right to retaliate after Iran’s attack

Israel reserves right to retaliate after Iran’s attack

United Nations, Apr 15 (UNI) Israel has the legal right to respond to Iran's recent attack on the Jewish state since it "crossed every red line," Israeli Permanent Representative to the United Nations Gilad Erdan said.

"This attack crossed every red line, and Israel reserves the legal right to retaliate... Following such a massive and direct attack on Israel, the entire world, let alone Israel, cannot settle for inaction. We will defend our future," Erdan said at the UN Security Council meeting on Sunday.

On Saturday night, Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps launched over 300 drones and missiles at Israel in its first-ever direct attack on Israeli territory, according to IDF data. The attack came in response to Israel’s airstrike on the Iranian consulate in Damascus on April 1. Israel Defence Forces spokesman Daniel Hagari said that Israel had intercepted 99 per cent of the aerial targets fired by Iran, including all drones.
