The Cradle reports…

The Israeli army confirmed that one of its bases was damaged in the Iranian drone and missile attack on Israel on 14 April. 

“Some damage has been recorded, including at a military base in the south of the country,” Israeli army spokesman Daniel Hagari said, adding that minor damage was inflicted on the base and that one girl in the Negev region was injured by shrapnel.

Iranian media confirmed Tehran’s ballistic missile attack on Israel’s Nevatim air base in the southern Negev desert. The ballistic missiles were launched by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Force, in coordination with other units of Iran’s army.

Video footage across social media shows numerous Iranian missiles raining down on the Nevatim base.

Iranian forces had carried out missile drills in February last year, simulating an attack on this particular Israeli military facility. The Nevatim air base, 1,100 kilometers from Iranian territory, houses the latest F-35 warplanes. The facility has an airport and three runways.

Tehran said several other sites and targets were struck in the attack, which was dubbed “Operation True Promise” and included the use of hundreds of drones and missiles.

The Iranian strikes were a response to the Israeli airstrike on Iran’s consulate in Damascus on 1 April, which destroyed the entire building and killed several top officials and advisors, including Brigadier General Mohamed Reza Zahidi of the IRGC Quds Force. The attack was an unprecedented violation of international law’s protection for diplomatic missions.

“The mission has been accomplished and has obtained the desirable results,” the Iranian army’s Chief of Staff, Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri, said on Sunday morning.

“A considerable number of drones and cruise and ballistic missiles have been used in this operation with well-thought-out tactics and proper planning … Although Iran has no intention of continuing the operation, the Zionist regime must bear in mind that any action against Iran, either on the Iranian soil or against centers belonging to Iran in Syria or any other country, will trigger a new and more immense operation,” he added.

He also confirmed that Tehran is capable of an attack “tens of times” greater and that US bases will be struck if Washington chooses to cooperate in any Israeli response.
