Probably just the beginning of a larger strike. They sent drones, most of which will probably be shot down by the Americans and others over Iraq and others’ airspace. The Iran will later sent some missiles of various speed, including ballistic, to coincide with the timing of the simultaneous hit on Israel. It may possibly involve a fair attack from the Lebanon (perhaps for distraction of the Israeli air defences). Houthis might be involved as well.

Not that it wasn’t expected.

Apparently drones don’t really worry Israel. Israel turned off the GPS all over the country and there were reports that drones use the gps to aim itself. Without gps they just fall out of the skies. In any case, they will be shot down by the air defence system and don’t represent much danger. The Iron Dome system is ready for the missiles. So hopefully Israel is fully prepared….
Russia has not come out with any statement. Same as China. So hopefully these two will sit quiet and don’t get involved.

Israel isn't going to take this lying down, I think we're in for a full scale war.

To KGB: Unless they are set up for GPS, GLONAS, and what the Chinese’ve got. Which would make the most sense. “Turning off” the GPS is not going to work in that case, which is most likely. Some major jamming will have to be involved as well.

Not sure. Also Israel was the one that took to the next level here.

Some of these religious feuds have gone on for thousands of years and until they wipe each other out will continue. This is a zero sum game and mutually assured destruction.

According to Al Jazeera, these drones carry a 20 kg. warhead, relatively small in the grand scheme of things.

Quite possible, I was listening to one reporter who was saying turning off but yeah I think more like jamming the gps.

Hopefully at some point their beliefs will start to fade with newer generations. Like the rest of the modern world.

Religious beliefs don’t really need to fade they just need to develop a level of tolerance where they just leave each other alone

I’m supposed to be heading to Dubai on Monday. Hoping it doesn’t escalate beyond this.

Not going to happen. Israel gets to enjoy its promised land plus peace during the Millennial period right after Armaggedon. This response from Iran just brings us that much closer to the big battle.

Ever since Israel launched a strike against the Iranian embassy in Damascus on April 1, killing seven people including two senior members of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, fears have mounted that Tehran would order a revenge attack against Israel.


The Israeli strike on Iran’s consulate in Syria could be the spark that ignites the Middle East.



Iran has a right to defend itself too, isn't it?

And an EMP over Tehran puts them back to the stone age, and IDF gets to target their nuclear program directly. Might be the price they had to pay for regime change in Iran and eventual peace in the ME.

I wonder if it’s just going to be a tit for tat. I don’t think Iran wants the U.S. to get involved. Otherwise, it gonna git ugly.

Fox saying Iran has telegraphed this is a 'one & done' as long as Israel plays nice. Israel has to deal with a nuclear Iran.......

Are you saying Iran has nuclear weapons capability or did you mean to say "Iran has to deal with a nuclear Israel"?

I was under the impression Iran did not have nuclear weapons, yet anyway.

Does Iran even have a Nuclear capability ? Every time they get close, the reactor blows up or the scientists mysteriously die. That would be the height of stupidity.

Very doubtful in the foreseeable future, Islam on the whole has been going backwards, being progressive will get you killed.

I wonder if Israel bombing Iran's embassy in Syria was a provocation? I should have been more clear, if Iran gets full nuclear capability, Israel will be the target

Americans suspect this is the case.

Edit: Quick search, but there are more detailed reports, days prior to this strike:
