Israel, allies successfully block mass missile attack from Iran

by Renata

Israel on Saturday successfully defended itself from hundreds of missiles and drones launched by Iran and its proxies – the first time Iran has directly attacked Israel.

The attack came after Iran vowed revenge on Israel for an airstrike that killed two Iranian generals at its embassy in Syria. Almost all of the attacks were intercepted – thanks to the help of Israel’s allies, including the U.S., U.K., France and Jordan.

US officials say the attack was “designed to cause mass casualties,” by targeting “major civilian areas.” No deaths were reported, but several people were injured including a 7-year-old girl.
