The security establishment on Monday was reportedly bracing for a retaliatory strike by Iran, following a series of attacks against Islamic Republic targets over the past several days that have been blamed on Israel.
The Kan public broadcaster reported Monday that security officials have held discussions over the past day to try to predict when and how Iran will respond to several strikes on convoys that reportedly were ferrying weapons and ammunition for Tehran-backed militias in Syria over the past 48 hours.
Channel 12 carried a similar report.
Those airstrikes followed a more significant drone attack on a key defense facility in the city of Isfahan. The site hit in Saturday’s strike was reportedly a weapons production facility for Iran’s killer Shahed-136 drones.
The series of attacks were widely attributed to Israel, which has a policy of not commenting on such operations.
In addition to retaliatory attacks against targets inside Israel, the security establishment was readying for the possibility that the Islamic Republic would take aim at Israeli tourists, officials, and embassies abroad, Kan reported without citing sources.
