Published On: April 16, 2024 - Israel and Iran are the deadliest of enemies. Both are separated by over a thousand kilometres. They’ve been fighting an undeclared proxy war since the 1980s. But on April 1, a red line was crossed when Israel struck an Iranian consulate in Damascus, killing 7 Iranian military personnel. Iran retaliated nearly two weeks later by firing 300 drones and missiles at Israel. This is the first time that both countries have directly struck at each other. Will the escalation lead to another major and prolonged stand-off? Join us as we delve into the issue with News9 Plus Editor Sandeep Unnithan, along with his colleague Aditya Raj Kaul, defence analyst Abhijit Iyer Mitra, and Lev Aran, Israeli journalist, joining live from Israel.
