The IDF may launch a direct strike against the Islamic Republic. This will happen if Iran launches a missile attack on Israel from its territory.

This was stated by Israeli Foreign Minister Israel Katz. His comment is related to the escalation of tensions between the states after the deaths of high-ranking generals of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps during Israel's strike on the Iranian consulate in Syria.

"If Iran attacks from its territory, Israel will respond and strike Tehran," the minister said in a post on X in Farsi and Hebrew.

Earlier on Wednesday, Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei reiterated his promise to take measures in response to Israel for the attack on its consulate in Damascus.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, the conflict between Israel and Iran is entering a new phase. Iran is currently preparing to respond to Israel's attack on the Iranian consulate in Syria.

The conflict between the two countries, which has long been a proxy war, escalated with the outbreak of the civil war in Syria. In particular, Israel accused Iran of attempting to create a land corridor through Iraq and Syria to Lebanon and warned that it considered this a significant strategic threat. In response, Iranian leaders called Israel an "illegitimate Zionist regime." Since then, the conflict between Israel and Iran has moved to a "hot" stage.

In Damascus, an air strike destroyed an extension of the Iranian consulate. Eight (according to some reports, six) people were reported killed, including Mohammad Reza Zahedi, the highest-ranking commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.
