Iran likely to attack Israel in 48 hours

Iran is likely to carry out a direct attack on Israel within the next 48 hours and the Jewish nation is preparing for it, according to a report.

The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday (April 12), citing a person who had been briefed by the Iranian leadership.

The confrontation with Israel’s age-old rival Iran comes even as it is engaged in a war with Hamas in Gaza. There is no end in sight to the Israel-Hamas war.

The person quoted by The Wall Street Journal said that Iran was still weighing the political risks of a direct attack on Israel.

“The strike plans are in front of the Supreme Leader, and he is still weighing the political risk,” an adviser to Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said, according to reports.

The latest escalation comes with Iran vowing to avenge the strike on its consulate in Damascus, Syria, that killed a top Iranian general and six other military officers.

Iran blamed Israel for the attack, while the Jewish state hasn’t publicly acknowledged or denied its role in the attack.

Israeli warplanes reportedly attacked Iran’s consulate in Damascus on April 1, killing the top Iranian military commander and six officers.

The attack that demolished the Iranian consulate in Syrian capital, killed Mohammad Reza Zahedi of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps.
