Iran struck ‘important’ Israeli military targets – IRGC

Multiple IDF sites have been “hit and destroyed,” the Islamic Republic’s Revolutionary Guard Corps has claimed.

Revolutionary Guard Corps has said in a statement published by IRNA news agency. The Islamic Republic’s military managed to “hit and destroy” some “important military targets,” it added, without providing any further details.

Iran launched a major air strike against Israel in response to what it called “numerous crimes” supposedly committed by West Jerusalem, including an alleged Israeli attack on the Iranian consulate in the Syrian capital of Damascus. The attack that took place on April 1 killed seven officers of the IRGC’s Quds Force, including two generals.

The Islamic Republic’s attack involved more than 100 drones, Israeli and Western media reported. The Israel Defense Force said they were tracking the incoming unmanned aerial vehicles and intercepting them mid-air, with the help from allied forces.

Iranian media published several short clips on social networks, purportedly showing the moments the Islamic Republic’s missiles hit their targets in Israel. One of them was supposedly taken in a settlement in the Negev desert located in the southern part of the country.

The videos show what appears to be several missiles striking some targets in a settlement. RT could not independently verify those clips.

West Jerusalem has not confirmed any damage resulting from the Iranian strike so far. The only person injured in the attack so far was a 10-year-old child in southern Israel, the local media reported.

In its statement, the IRGC also explicitly warned the US that “any support” Washington could provide to Israel in “harming Iran’s interests” would be met with a “decisive” response by the Islamic Republic’s military. Tehran also considers Washington “responsible for the evil actions” of West Jerusalem, the statement added. Iran also warned its neighbors against assisting the US or Israel in their potential attacks against the Islamic Republic. Tehran would give a “proportional response” to such actions as well, it said.

In the wake of the attack, the Israeli media reported that West Jerusalem was planning massive retaliation to the Iranian strike. TV Channel 12 said, citing a “senior Israeli official” as a “unprecedented response” to the attack is in the works. Israel’s Culture and Sports Minister Miki Zohar also stated that West Jerusalem “received broad international legitimacy tonight to strike Iran with unprecedented force.”

    • Clearly you have little understanding that this likely leads to nuclear annihilation of the northern hemisphere and a long, slow radioactive death for the southern – the globalists pushing for this do so as their mental illness is now so complete that apparently they think they can survive deep down in their South Island / Tasmanian bunkers BUT if this kicks off, guess who will be dug and held to account by those (left) who know where they are.

      At this point the best advice I have heard is to get right with God.

      • Rubbish. The Russians have moved military assets into the region as Iran is a key partner. The Yanks who are greatly weakened by supplying Ukraine simply don’t have the strength to respond. Nor do they have the air defences to stave off a nuclear attack back home. In short its another bluff. Joe has already said he wants no part of any response. of course not, NATO has already shown its weak and so is its master, by extension.

      • Sonia, You are very right. Backing down and pushing back from the table doesn’t seem to be in their play book. It would seem the constant bombing of civilians in the Gaza Strip long after the Palestinians were defeated encouraged this retaliation. The truth is the people who have engineered this outcome are not the ones on the front line. However today both sides should recognise those N weapons penetrate well beyond the front lines and some may get through.

  1. Wow. Biased reporting what? The putting everything Iran says in scare quotes while not doing so for genocide merchants in Israel is a particularly nice touch, not to mention the enormous number of inaccuracies in your story. Way to tell us that you’re rooting for the zionist genocide merchants without telling us that you’re rooting for the zionist genocide merchants.
    I come to this website for honest, unbiased reporting. This is deeply disappointing propaganda.

    • Hang on a minute mate.
      AFAIK, this site is run on minimal budget with sometimes re-printed articles.
      I trust that you always do your own due diligence, and hey, it might give you giggles to ‘rubbish’ such article you want to refute.
      YOU CAN!
      And that is BECAUSE DTNZ does not need Karens to poopoo what they publish, given the fact that YOU have been given by DTNZ YOUR say, namely to be able to write a totally anonymous comment (including the really valid references your kindly provided to eluciate us readers as to your insights).
      And because you are such an accomplished investigator, tell me ONE other publication that does so (i.e. totally FREE comment section).
      Back to your original beef:
      The eternal question of “WHY” you are here lingers.
      YOU ought to know propaganda, that’s why YOU are here, right?
      Do mull on that aspect for a minute.
      …So you read an article that offended your feelings….
      …or your perceived but murky ideology…..
      …or maybe you just had a bad day…
      …instead on focussing on the content and counter thed article, YOU go on an ad-hominem, instead of the point.
      …play the ball…

      ….YOU know what’s coming nekt?
      ….wait for it…

      I couldn’t care less (although, yes, I spend a couple of minutes to get this off me chest.)

      I am not affiliated with DTNZ
      and I still don’t care on subject above (well, …a bit, ok)
      Peace.
