Israel thinks Iran to deliver strike on it after April 12 — publication

Israeli military officials expect Tehran’s response to an attack on Iran’s consulate in Syria after April 12, The Times of Israel online publication said.

Israel estimates that an Iranian response will not come until after the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr, which ends April 12, according to the forecast. The army also thinks that an attack will target military or strategic assets and not civilian sites. The Israeli side is preparing for the possibility of an attack coming from any of a number of proxies, or from Iran itself, as well as the possibility of a multi-pronged assault, The Times of Israel said.

Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant said earlier that the ministry had completed preparations for a response to any possible scenario that might develop regarding Iran.

On April 1, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) announced that seven Iranian military advisors had been killed in an Israeli airstrike on Tehran’s consulate in Damascus. Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said that Tehran would make Israel repent for the strike, while President Ebrahim Raisi vowed that the attack would not go unanswered. Israel has so far made no statements on responsibility for the airstrike. However, Israel Defense Forces Spokesman Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari told CNN that, according to the Israeli military's data, the strike had not targeted Iran’s consulate but an IRGC military facility, which he claimed had only been disguised as a civilian building.
