Iran's 'massive attack' on Israel 'imminent,' Americans warn

Tensions are rising again in the conflict in the Middle East. In an article published by the Bloomberg agency on Wednesday April 10, American intelligence predicted an “imminent massive attack” by Iran and its allied groups against Israel. The question is no longer “if” this attack will take place but “when,” an anonymous source close to American intelligence told the agency.

A general from the American command in the Middle East is expected in Israel this Thursday, April 11 to provide an update on the situation, according to the same source. According to the American media Axios, American General Erik Kurilla is expected to meet Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant as well as IDF officers.

On April 1, Israel attacked the Iranian consulate in Damascus in Syria, killing 16 people, including seven members of the Revolutionary Guard Corps, the ideological army of the Islamic Republic. One of the top generals of Iran's Quds Force, Mohammad Reza Zahedi, died in the attack. The supreme leader, Ali Khamenei, then vowed several times that “the Zionist regime will be punished.”

US President Joe Biden reaffirmed his “unwavering” support for Israel on Wednesday. Iran “is threatening to launch a significant attack against Israel,” he confirmed during a joint press conference at the White House with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida. “As I told Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, our commitment to the security of Israel, in the face of these threats from Iran and its allies, is unwavering.” “I repeat: unwavering. We will do everything we can to protect Israel’s security,” he added.

For its part, the Jewish state has strengthened its defense systems and prepared for different scenarios. On Wednesday, Israel's foreign minister warned: "If Iran carries out an attack from its territory, Israel will respond and attack Iran." Faced with this escalation, the German airline Lufthansa announced during the night from Wednesday to Thursday that it was suspending its flights to Tehran.
