Iran Launches Massive Attack on Israel, Intercepted by Israeli Defense Forces

In a significant escalation of tensions in the Middle East, Iran has launched a massive attack comprising over 300 drones and missiles targeting Israel. According to Israel Defense Forces spokesman Daniel Hagari, the onslaught represents the first full-scale military assault by Tehran against Israel.

Hagari reported that the Israeli Defense Forces successfully intercepted "more than 99 percent" of the incoming drones and missiles. The operation highlights the advanced defense capabilities of Israel in countering such threats.

Reacting to the attack, President Biden condemned the "brazen attack" and assured Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of the United States' unwavering support. Biden reaffirmed the nation's "ironclad commitment" to Israel's security during a conversation with Netanyahu.

The ongoing situation underscores the volatile nature of the region and the potential for further escalation. Both Iran and Israel have long-standing tensions, and this latest incident adds to the complex geopolitical landscape of the Middle East.
