Jerusalem : The  Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has rejected calls for restraint from his close allies, saying his country will decide how to respond to Iran’s major airstrike earlier this week. Israel pledged to respond to Iran’s unprecedented attack, but did not clarify when or how it would respond. In October last year, Hamas fighters ruling the Gaza Strip attacked Israel, killing about 1200 people and taking many hostage. In response to this, Israel started a military campaign which is still going on and there is a fear that it will take a more serious form.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in his cabinet meeting, ‘I want to make it clear that we will take our own decisions. Israel will do whatever is necessary to defend itself.’ It is noteworthy that since the attack, Israel’s allies have been urging it to stay away from any reaction that could further escalate the conflict. The foreign ministers of Britain and Germany also reiterated the same appeal during their respective visits to Israel on Wednesday. According to the report, Iran attacked Israel with 185 drones. Apart from this, 110 surface-to-surface and 36 cruise missiles were also fired.

Due to this, the Israeli territory was destroyed. Looking at the video in the media, it seems as if fireworks are going off. According to the report, most of the missiles and drones were launched from Iran, while some missiles were also fired from Iraq and Yemen. As soon as information about the Iranian attack was received, Western countries came forward to protect Israel. US President Joe Biden said that almost all the missiles and drones fired by Iran were neutralized.

Iran openly attacked Israel for the first time. Iran attacked Israel with hundreds of drones and missiles. However, Israel and its allies neutralized more than 300 drones and missiles. Amidst the fear of Israeli retaliation and escalating conflict, many countries of the world including America have appealed to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to exercise restraint, but he has rejected it outright. He said in clear words that whatever is necessary, he will definitely do.
