Israeli President Isaac Herzog called the Iranian air attack that took place on the night of April 14 a "declaration of war."

"This is a declaration of war," said the President of Israel, commenting on the Iranian attack.

Herzog noted that Israel is now "considering all options" in response to the attack, but is not seeking war.

"Now, because we are restrained and because we know the repercussions, and because we have deliberations with our partners, we are considering all options and I’m quite confident that we will take the necessary steps to protect and defend our people. We are not war seekers," he emphasized.

According to the Israeli President, the Iranian attack was another example of how Iran is spreading chaos, terror and instability around the world.

"It’s about time that the world faces this empire of evil in Tehran, and makes it clear to the Iranian regime that this cannot pass by, that this is unacceptable," Herzog added.

Iran's attack on Israel

On the night of April 14, Iran attacked Israel with hundreds of attack drones and missiles. Israel said that almost all air targets were shot down, and the damage from the attack was insignificant. Read more about the results of Iran's attack on Israel in RBC-Ukraine's article.

According to Western media, Israel will retaliate against Iran, but the extent of the response will be determined at a meeting of the military cabinet. The United States has already warned Israel that it will not participate in the response.

At the same time, Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz said that the response to Iran's attack will be when it is convenient for Israel.
