Netanyahu said Israel was prepared for an attack

The Israeli Military said Iran launched a “pilotless aircraft” towards Israel.

Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari said: “We have prepared for diverse scenarios in advance.

“In order to intercept these launches, we have the circles of protection from both the navy and the air force on several layers.

He explained the aircraft will take “several hours” to reach Israel and sirens will sound.

He added: “We are going to try to prevent them from reaching Israeli territory, that is our task.

“If they do enter Israeli airspace, then you will hear sirens and alarms wherever these threats enter and we will intercept them.”

Earlier today Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel was prepared for a “direct attack from Iran” following its threats of retaliation for a deadly air strike on its Damascus consulate.

“Our defence systems are deployed, we are prepared for any scenario, both in defence and attack,” he said in a televised statement, adding that Israel had the backing of the United States and “many” countries.

Iran revealed its bone-chilling war chest days ago, including terrifying long-range missiles that can cross the Red Sea to pummel Israel directly.

It comes as Jordan announced it closed its airspace to all incoming, departing and transit aircraft.

Aviation authorities cited by Al Mamlaka said the situation would be “continuously updated and reviewed according to developments”.

Israel warned earlier today that Iran would suffer the “consequences for choosing to escalate the situation any further.”

The strong warning came after Iran seized a container ship linked to Israel in the Gulf, and as Israel announced it was closing schools nationwide for security reasons.
