Iran will attack Israel, but Biden says please don’t

US President Joe Biden says he expects Iran to attack Israel sooner than later, A retaliation towards Israel is expected from Iran after an air strike that killed Iran’s top commanders.

US officials have told CBS News that a major attack on Israel could happen imminently.

Israel says it is ready to defend itself – Biden replied curtly : “Don’t”. 

„We are devoted to the defence of Israel. We will support Israel”, Biden appeased. „We will help defend Israel and Iran will not succeed.”

Iran supports Hamas and Hezbollah. Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, wants vengeance. 

On Friday, Hezbollah said it had launched „dozens” of rockets from Lebanon towards Israel. An Israel Defense Forces  spokesman said around 40 missiles and two explosive drones had been launched. 

No casualties were reported and there were no indications of involvement from other actors.

A US official told CBS the barrage was separate from any expected Iranian attack on Israel.

Iran remains unclear on the subject, and doesn’t want a war. Nor has Israel claimed the initial attack. 

Mounting tensions have led countries including the US, UK, India and Australia to warn against travel to Israel. Germany called on its citizens to leave Iran, reports the BBC. 

Officials in several countries have been trying to dissuade Iran from launching an attack, fearing it could spark a wider regional war.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has spoken to the foreign ministers of China, Saudi Arabia and Turkey in hopes of having them appeal to Iran. 

The US state department also barred diplomatic staff and their families in Israel from travelling outside the cities of Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Beersheba.

The Israeli government has not issued any new advice to its people on top of existing guidance to stock up on water, food for three days and essential medicine.

Israeli radio, however, reported local authorities had been told to prepare for the possibility of an attack, including by assessing the readiness of public shelters.

Last week, the Israeli military cancelled home leave for combat troops, bolstered air defences and called up reservists.
