 – Israel will respond to Iran‘s weekend missile and drone attack on its territory, the military chief of staff said on Monday.

“This launch of so many missiles, cruise missiles, and drones into Israeli territory will be met with a response,” Chief of Staff Herzi Halevi said, speaking from the Nevatim air force base in southern Israel, which sustained some damage in the attack.

Iran‘s attack was a response to the killing of seven Iranian officers in a strike on the Iranian embassy compound in Damascus on April 1.
