Iran Issues Response Following Israeli Attack, Reveals Next Step

Are we looking at a cleverly designed piece of theatre here?

I recently asked the question in one of my other pieces exploring whether or not the Iran-Israel conflict was staged.

Both countries have done a lot of saber-rattling and carried out what appeared to be show strikes against each other. Iran launched approximately 300 missiles and drones at Israel—over 99% were reportedly deflected.

Israel’s response was also lackluster with no Iranian nuclear sites suffering damage and minimal damages reported overall.

Following the Israeli response to the Iranian attack, Iranian Foreign Minister Amir-Abdollahian said that Iran would leave things alone as long as Israel did not attack again.

The next step is that there is no next step, unless, of course, Israel decides to escalate against Iran.

Iran’s Foreign Minister said this about the recent Israeli strike against Iran: “[These are] Toys that our children play with, not drones.

As long as there is no new adventurism by Israel against our interests, then we are not going to have any new reactions.”

Fox News also featured this claim from the Iranian Foreign Minister:

Amir-Abdollahian also stated that the Iranian regime is not completely convinced the strike came from Israel, though he failed to offer alternative theories.

“If Israel takes a decisive action against my country and this is proven to us, our response will be immediate and to the maximum and will cause them to regret it,” the foreign minister said.

The damage from each country’s attack was minimal, and many raised questions over the seemingly bungled military operations.

Are Iran and Israel simply attacking each other for show without any intention of causing any real harm?

Iran’s Foreign Minister also claimed that his country used restraint in their missile attack, NBC News reports:

Amirabdollahian said the attack was intended to be “a warning.” “We could have hit Haifa and Tel Aviv,” he said.

“We could have also targeted all the economic ports of Israel.”

“But our red lines was civilians,” he added. “We only had a military purpose.”
