After Iran’s attack, Israel is also looking for revenge and has said that it will respond at the right time. Yesterday, the five-member war cabinet of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held an emergency meeting. All the leaders supported Israel for its retaliation against the HAMAS, but the panel questioned the timing and the manner of the attack. The United States is also on alert mode regarding this war-crisis. Recently, US President Joe Biden had a conversation on a phone call with Netanyahu and urged him to take steps carefully and strategically in the future.

On the other hand, Israel’s representative in the United Nations, Gilad Erdan, demanded the Security Council to impose strict sanctions on Iran. On the other hand, Iran has also warned America to stay away from this dispute otherwise the consequences will not be right.

President Joe Biden has told the Israeli prime minister he will not offer military support for any retaliation against Iran, a senior US official said. Biden said that he does not want war between the two countries.
