Iran strikes Israel with drones, but how effective?

Two sides of the story. Iran “punishes” Israel. Israel says 99% of drones were shot down. What concerns us more is what the retaliation will be and how this will escalate. MH

Israel getting punished with ‘Operation Truthful Promise’

Israeli reports say Iran has already fired three waves of drones at Israeli positions, as well as a number of cruise missiles. Footage captured by citizens in Iraq, suggests Iran’s famous Shahed-136 drones are among the UAVs launched at the occupied territories.

The initial announcement regarding the launch of the Iranian attacks came from the Israeli military. Daniel Hagari, the army’s spokesperson, stated that the drones would take some hours to reach their destination while emphasizing Israel’s readiness for the situation.

During a briefing with the press, Hagari highlighted that Israel has defensive and offensive measures in place and maintains close cooperation with the U.S. and regional partners.

Iran also confirmedit has begun its retaliation against Israel through a TV announcement. A news anchor, reading a statement by the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC), said:

“In response to various crimes of the Zionist regime, including the attack on the Iranian consulate section in Damascus and the martyrdom of some of our country’s military commanders and advisors in Syria, the IRGC’s Air Force targeted specific objectives inside the occupied territories by hitting them with dozens of missiles and drones.”

ABC News has quoted American officials claiming that 400 to 500 drones are currently making their way towards Israel after being launched from Iran’s territory.

Before the direct Iranian attack on Israeli targets, Hezbollah initiated a significant rocket barrage targeting the northern areas of occupied Palestine and the Golan Heights.

A cyber attack also plunged vast areas of the occupied territories, including Tel Aviv, into darkness.

Further Information indicates that both the Lebanese group and the Ansarullah movement in Yemen have initiated drone attacks on the occupied territories concurrently with Iranian strikes.


Israel shoots down ‘99 per cent’ of Iranian missiles and drones 

Israel and its allies intercepted “99 per cent” of the drones and missiles fired at its territory by Iran on Saturday, the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) said.

Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari, the IDF spokesman, said Iran had launched more than 300 drones along with cruise missiles and ballistic missiles but no fatalities had been reported.

Yoav Gallant, the Israeli defence minister, said the bombardment had caused “very little” damage as a result of  the “impressive operations” by the IDF and Israel’s allies...READ MORE: Iran-Israel attack latest: Israel shoots down ’99 per cent’ of Iranian missiles and drones (
