Iran has launched drones toward Israel, an IDF spokesman says. The Israeli military says it's tracking the threat in airspace and the drones could take hours to reach Israel. Follow live updates.

There are reports that Iran is also firing ballistic and cruise missiles at Israel.

Here's a post I made in the PT a while ago. Our Air Force and Navy are involved. That gives me anxiety. LINK

This is not as bad as many are making it out to be, and the title of the thread is misleading. There were hours of advanced warning. The risk is if God forbid any fall through and lead to loss of civilian life, Israel takes the next step of escalation. Then you have full on war that no one (except maybe Bibi himself) wants.

Seems like a face saving attack by Iran after the embassy bombing.

They did something similar to us a few years ago after we killed one of their main generals.

Just keep in mind that early reports on specifics in these types of ongoing situations are usually inaccurate. We'll have to wait for better information before the full picture and context are clear.

That depends on Bibi. If there is no damage to Israel (which seems the most likely result), I think the U.S. will be very direct with him behind the scenes. Iran has said they think the matter is closed and they gave the U.S. advance warning. The U.S. does not want Israel dragging it into a war no matter how much Bibi wants it for his personal cause.

US and British warplanes were reported to have downed some Israel-bound Iranian drones late on Saturday, as Israel’s allies rallied to help it defend itself from an unprecedented multi-pronged attack from Tehran.

The White House said the “airborne attack” against Israel was likely to “unfold over a number of hours” and reiterated its “ironclad support” for the Jewish state’s security.

This was also reported by Israeli newspapers. Hopefully this is posturing for purposes of bargaining - either with the U.S. support for Israel or with neighbors.

That's good news!

We'll see how this escalates. I'm not expecting WW3 or anything. But nothing good can come from this.

Absolutely stupid move by Iran there. You already proved your point.

I thought Iran's attack was in response to Israel's aggression last week?

In any event, this is all Putin. He's using Iran (and their client, Hamas) to draw resources away from Ukraine.

FWIW, I expect the US & UK to wipe out the Iranian air force.

Iranian Air Force is mostly made up of old American aircraft from the 70's like F-14's and F-4's. The real stuff that is of use these days are the drones and cruise missiles they are pumping out of their factories.

Thank ! I needed that both on a serious note with all this crap and on a more serious note with all of these uninformed babies who think the 2020’s and LBJ are the pinnacle of basketball.

True, but drones and cruise missiles are useless if the other side has air superiority. The US can not only establish air superiority, it can establish air supremacy just with the assets it has in place and nothing will be able to fly over Iran. USAF knocks out SAM & radar sites, then USN knocks out Iranian airplanes and any airfields capable of launching planes or drones. Iran may be able to launch a dozen or so drones off of highways, but then USAF comes back and drops bomblets on Iranian highways with impunity.

We cannot win ground wars without a heavy investment, but Uncle Sam can pretty much create a no-fly zone anywhere on Earth..

12 hours ago #israelvsiran #revengeattack #iranattacksisrael
Israel reassured Arab nations that its imminent revenge strike on Iran would not endanger them. This came amid concerns that Arab nations would have to face Iran's wrath if attacked by Israel. Israel reached out to Jordan, Egypt and the Gulf states. Watch the full video to know more.
