Iran-Israel Conflict: Iran launched its first direct attack on Israel on Sunday, days after the airstrike on its embassy in Damascus. Iran launched a barrage of drones and missiles toward Israel, threatening a major crisis in the Middle East region, which is already under stress due to the war in Gaza. Meanwhile, the United States has reaffirmed its "ironclad" support for Israel's security, vowing to help defend Israel against threats from Iran. Israel has requested the UN Security Council to hold an emergency meeting to condemn Iran's attack. After this, Iran has threatened America to stay away from it.

Israeli military spokesman Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari said Iran fired more than 200 drones, ballistic and cruise missiles. Iran said the attack was a punishment for "Israel's crimes." Iran noted the April 1 attack on the Damascus Consulate, in which seven of its top officials, including generals, were killed. Israel neither confirmed nor denied its involvement in the attack.

The Iranian mission to the United Nations warned the US to "stay away", saying, "If the Israeli regime makes another mistake, Iran's reaction will be quite severe." It said that now this matter should be considered closed.

According to reports, US and British warplanes shot down a drone going to Israel on the Iraq-Syria border. Jordan shot down drones that violated its airspace.

Israel's military spokesman Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari described the attack as serious. "This is a serious and dangerous situation," he said.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called a war cabinet meeting in Tel Aviv and said his country was preparing for a direct attack by Iran and was prepared for any situation. "In recent years, and especially in recent weeks, Israel has been preparing for a direct attack by Iran. Our defensive systems are deployed; we are ready for any situation, both defensive and offensive."

The United States has vowed to help Israel defend against attack by Iran. White House spokeswoman Adrienne Watson said in a statement, "President Biden has been clear. Our support for Israel's security remains steadfast. The United States will stand with the people of Israel and support their defense against these threats from Iran." Will do." Iran's Defense Minister has warned that any country that opens its airspace or territory to attacks on Iran by Israel will receive a "strong response from Tehran".

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has condemned Iran. "I condemn in the strongest terms the Iranian regime's reckless attack against Israel. The UK will stand up for Israel's security and, with all our regional partners, including Jordan and Iraq, will work to stabilize this situation and prevent further escalation." We are working on it immediately.”

Germany, France and the European Union have also condemned Iran's attack. EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said, "The EU strongly condemns the unacceptable Iranian attack against Israel. It poses a serious threat to regional security."

Meanwhile, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said the world cannot afford another war. "I strongly condemn Iran's massive attack on Israel," he wrote on Twitter. "I call for an immediate end to these hostilities. Neither the region nor the world can afford another war. "
