Israel carefully considering response to Iran attack, minister says

Tel Aviv, 14 April 2024 (dpa/MIA) - Israel is weighing up its actions carefully after the major attack by Iran, Foreign Minister Israel Katz said in an interview with the Israeli army radio station.

"We have said: if Iran attacks Israel, we will attack Iran. And this commitment is still valid," Katz said.

However, he said the specific question of a possible response would be discussed in the appropriate framework under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Katz expressed confidence that the appropriate and correct decisions would be made there.

Israeli television station Channel 12 and other media announced at midday that the war cabinet would meet at 3:30 pm (12:30 GMT) to discuss the next steps.
