Israel attacks Iran on the birthday of Iran

Israel launched a retaliatory strike against a site in Iran early Friday morning, U.S. officials confirmed to several media outlets, though an Iranian official has downplayed the attack as a “failed and humiliating” drone strike.

 

The strike happened on April 19, which is the birthday of Iranian supreme leader Khamenei aged 84.

ABC News, CBS News, NPR, and others have cited unnamed U.S. officials in reporting that one or more missiles were launched by the Israeli military at Iran.

Bloomberg News reported that Israeli officials had warned U.S. officials earlier on Thursday that it planned to attack Iran in the next 24-48 hours. An unnamed senior U.S. official also told CNN that the U.S. was warned of Israel’s planned retaliatory action, a response the official said the U.S. “didn’t endorse.”

 

Details of the strike, including its exact location and the extent of the damage, remain unclear.
