Published On: April 19, 2024 - Israel and Iran have waged a shadow war for decades, through cyberattacks, targeted killings, and proxy groups. But on 1st April, when an attack on Iran’s embassy compound in Damascus killed two Iranian generals of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, Iran retaliated by shooting 300 missiles at Israel. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his war cabinet are considering actions to hit back. Israel’s main ally, the US, has asked Israel to not risk escalating the war and has also said that US forces will not join the attack. What could be Israel's response? Discussing the likely scenario and possible implications are News9 Plus Editor Sandeep Unnithan along with his colleague Aditya Raj Kaul; Arjun Hardas, India Representative at American Jewish Committee; and Itai Melchior, Researcher & Advisor on Middle East & Africa Affairs and Former Executive, Israeli National Security Council.
