Netanyahu Cancels Iran Attack After Biden Call



Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu canceled an immediate attack on Iran following a phone call with US President Joe Biden, who informed Netanyahu that the US would not participate in any offensive operations against Iran.

Citing two Israeli officials, western media reported that the cancellation followed a phone call with US President Joe Biden.

“It was decided primarily because of the small amount of damage caused by the Iranian attack,” the Israeli officials said.

According to the Ynet website, an Israeli response to the Iranian attack will probably not target Iranian territory directly but is more likely to resemble Israel's earlier attacks against Iranian targets in Syria and other regional countries.

Other reports suggest that Israeli minister Benny Gantz and Gadi Eisenkot proposed “an immediate response to the attack, but the proposal was rejected.”

Iran attacked Israel after an Israeli air strike killed seven members of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), including two generals in Syria’s Damascus two weeks ago.
