Breaking News: Iran planning to attack Israel in next 24 hours? Here’s what new report says

Date:

Tensions are high in the Middle East as Israel braces for a potential Iranian attack this weekend, targeting either the north or south of the country, according to a Wall Street Journal report citing anonymous sources.

Israel is bracing for a potential direct assault from Iran targeting either the northern or southern regions, according to sources cited in a recent Wall Street Journal report. Discussions regarding the attack plans are underway, though a final decision has yet to be reached.

The heightened tension follows Iran’s threat of retaliation for an airstrike allegedly carried out by Israel on a consulate building in Damascus, Syria. Tehran has accused Israel of the attack, which reportedly resulted in the deaths of 13 individuals, including a prominent member of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ elite Quds Force.

Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has repeatedly said Israel will be “punished” for the assault.

Amid the speculations, Bloomberg News had reported on Wednesday that the US and allies “were expecting a major escalation of hostilities, with targeted attacks on Israeli government and military site”.

According to Bloomberg, an Iranian offensive against Israel would probably involve a mix of missiles and drones, drawing from the country’s current capabilities as highlighted in a recent Defense Intelligence Agency Worldwide Threat assessment released on Thursday.

In recent developments, Iran has reportedly urged the US to refrain from intervention as it readies a response to an alleged Israeli strike on its consulate in Syria. Additionally, Hezbollah, Iran’s primary proxy in the Middle East, has issued a warning to Israel, signaling its readiness for potential conflict, as reported by Bloomberg.
