Iran attacks Israel – but what happens next?

World

On Saturday night Iran launched an unprecedented drone and missile attack against Israel, which Tehran has claimed is in retaliation for an attack on the consular section of the Iranian embassy in Damascus by Israel on 1 April.

Some 170 explosive drones, 120 ballistic missiles, and 30 cruise missiles were launched by Iran, according to the Israel Defence Forces (IDF), which said “99%” were intercepted.

Leaders across the world have condemned the attack and stated their support for Israel’s security. However, Iran’s foreign ministry said it would “not hesitate” to take “further defensive measures” to “safeguard its legitimate interests against any military aggressions”.

On this extra Sky News Daily episode, Rob Powell sits down with our international affairs editor Dominic Waghorn to discuss the significance and implications of Iran’s attack, and the response from Israel and its allies.
