UPDATES: Iran Sends Fresh Message to Israel

Following the attack on Israel on Saturday, April 13, 2024, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi has warned against Israel retaliation.

Raisi made this known on Wednesday, 17th of April in regards to alleged plan of retaliation for Iran’s unprecedented aerial attack on the Jewish state, saying Iran would follow with a “massive and harsh response.”

Raisi spoke during an annual military parade on the outskirts of Tehran, a day after Israel’s defense minister said Iranian threats would not deter an Israeli response.

Meanwhile, diplomats continued Wednesday to push for a de-escalation of the situation.

British Foreign Secretary David Cameron said during a visit to Jerusalem that it is clear Israel is making a decision to act, and that Britain hopes Israel responds “in a way that does as little to escalate this as possible.”

Cameron, who met with Israeli Foreign Minister Israel Katz, voiced support for enacting coordinated sanctions against Iran, as his counterparts from the Group of Seven leading industrial nations prepared for talks in Italy.

“I think there’s more that we can do to show a united front, that Iran is behind so much of the malign activity in this region, backing Hamas, backing Hezbollah, backing the Houthis,” Cameron said. “They need to be given a clear, unequivocal message by the G7.”
