Israel Defence Minister Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari declared today that Israel is on high alert, closely monitoring what he described as a planned attack by Iran and its allies in the region.

Hagari’s announcement came during a televised briefing, where he urged Israelis to remain vigilant and follow any instructions issued by the military.

“We are closely monitoring a planned attack by Iran and its allies,” stated Hagari, emphasizing the seriousness of the situation. He disclosed that dozens of combat planes have been mobilized, and the military’s Home Front Command is actively engaged in assessing potential threats and issuing necessary directives to the public.

As part of the heightened state of readiness, Israel has taken precautionary measures, including putting its forces on full alert and prohibiting school trips and other youth activities. The Home Front Command has also revised its defensive guidelines, limiting gatherings in open spaces and enhancing missile defense protocols.

The escalation in tensions follows the recent seizure of a ship by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard commandos in the Strait of Hormuz, a move that Iran claims is linked to Israel and poses a threat to its security. Additionally, tensions between Israel and Iran have been mounting since an Israeli strike destroyed Iran’s consulate in Damascus earlier this month.

Responding to the heightened threat, Israeli and US defense officials held discussions today. According to the Pentagon, Defence Secretary Lloyd Austin assured Hagari of unwavering US support in defending Israel against any potential attacks by Iran and its proxies.

The Iranian Foreign Minister, Hossein Amirabdollahian, justified the possibility of a strike as “legitimate defense” in response to the bombing of the consulate. This rhetoric has further fueled concerns of an imminent conflict between the two nations.

With tensions at a critical juncture, the region remains on edge as Israel braces itself for a potential attack while seeking assurance from its allies, particularly the United States, for support in the face of escalating threats from Iran and its allies.
