Chief of the General Staff, LTG Herzi Halevi

April 15, 2024 (EIRNS)—Israel Defense Forces Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Herzi Halevi met soldiers today at the Nevatim Air Base, which had been hit by Iran early yesterday. Halevi said that the attack “will be met with a response,” reported the Times of Israel. He added: “Iran wanted to harm the strategic capabilities of the State of Israel—that is something that had not happened before…. We are looking ahead, we are considering our steps, and this launch of so many missiles, cruise missiles, and UAVs into the territory of the State of Israel will be met with a response.”

He also released a video statement, where he said: “Iran will face the consequences for its actions…. Across the skies of the Middle East—a coalition was activated to counter this attack.… The Israel Defense Forces—together with the United States Central Command; the British Armed Forces; the French Armed Forces, and other partners—operated together in real-time—in the air, on the ground, and at sea. Defense systems were activated; the threats were intercepted—and Iran’s attack on Israel failed.… Iran’s attack has created new opportunities for cooperation in the Middle East. We are closely assessing the situation. We remain at our highest level of readiness. Iran will face the consequences for its actions. We will choose our response accordingly.
