Israel response to Iran attack could be ‘imminent’ and ‘coordinated’ with US

An Israeli official has warned a response to the recent Iranian attack may be “imminent.”

Israel’s war cabinet met for several hours on Monday and, following the meeting, the official said they believe a swift response is important.

The cabinet reportedly discussed multiple diplomatic and military options. The official said: “Any response will be coordinated with the Americans.”

Channel 12 News reported Israel wants to attack Iran without instigating a full-scale war.

Despite these comments by the official claiming to want coordinated attacks with the US, Joe Biden previously told Benjamin Netanyahu that his country would not participate in any counteroffensive against Iran.

US State Department spokesperson Matthew Miller said Israel and other nations were “effective” at neutralizing the threat from Iran over the weekend, adding that the attack could have caused a “significant loss of life.”

He said Biden and Secretary of State Antony Blinken have “consulted extensively with partners in the region and around the world.” They are calling for the international community to “act as a united front”.

Blinken said the US had been “coordinating a diplomatic response to seek to prevent escalation”. He added: “I’ve been in close communication with counterparts in the region and we will continue to do so in the hours and days ahead.”

Blinken continued: “We don’t seek escalation, but will continue to support the defence of Israel and to protect our personnel in the region.”

Miller said Iran’s attack “threatens to destabilise the region” and “violated the sovereignty of several states.”

Once again going against the Israeli official’s call for a coordinated attack with the US, Miller said his country wants de-escalation not an all-out war.
