Israel will react to the Iranian attack. The confirmation comes from General Herzi Halevi, although it is not clear at the moment in what form.

Benjamin Netanyahu's government therefore seems to have made its choice 48 hours after the rain of drones and missiles arriving from Tehran, while Iran - with its air defenses on maximum alert - anticipated that Israel's possible armed action this time "He will have a very harsh response."

EU opposition to the possible operation is very strong. In the United States Joe Biden, who had slowed down the Israeli reaction in the early hours, clearly reiterated that "an escalation in the Middle East must be avoided".

“There is no choice but to respond to Tehran's attack,” Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant told Pentagon chief Austin. And the IDF commander, Herzi Halevi, also confirmed that "the answer will be there". “The launch of so many drones and missiles on our territory will have its response,” he warned. If the armed reaction appears obvious at this point, it will be crucial to understand how Tehran will react.

The war cabinet is studying "different options". Each of which, it was explained, represents "a painful response" for the Iranians, without however risking triggering "a regional war".

In the small group of ministers - from Netanyahu to Gallant to Benny Gantz - who must make the decision, the objective is to choose an option that "is not blocked by the US" and which is a viable option.
