Israel's minister promises to demand the "exact price" from Iran for the attack at the appropriate moment

Earlier, Iranian Foreign Minister Abdollahian highlighted that Iran's exercise of the right of "legitimate defense" demonstrated its responsible approach to maintaining regional and international peace and security.

In response, Israeli minister Benny Gantz vowed that Israel would hold Iran accountable for its missile and drone attack when the appropriate time arrives. Gantz emphasized the establishment of a regional coalition to ensure that Iran faces consequences for its actions.

Tehran's Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian conveyed to the US that Iran's attacks on Israel were intended to be "limited" and in self-defense. This statement followed condemnation from Western nations regarding Iran's missile strike on Israel, urging de-escalation.

Iran's offensive, consisting of over 300 missiles, was prompted by Israel's alleged attack on its embassy in Syria on April 1. Israel claimed to have intercepted a significant portion of the missiles, resulting in minimal damage to an air base.

Western nations, led by the US, condemned Iran's aggression and pledged support to Israel while advocating for de-escalation.

Key developments include:

- Benny Gantz, Israel's centrist war cabinet minister, reiterated Israel's commitment to holding Iran accountable for its actions.
- Iran's Foreign Minister Abdollahian emphasized Iran's responsible defense posture and cautioned against further aggression.
- Iran justified its military action under Article 51 of the United Nations Charter, citing legitimate defense in response to Israel's alleged attack on its diplomatic premises in Damascus.

These developments underscore escalating tensions in the region and the potential for further instability.
