Iranian attack: Messages Delivered, Facts Proven

A day has passed since the Iranian attack that targeted the Israeli entity, in response to the Israeli raid that targeted the Iranian consulate in Damascus, as talk began to revolve around the details of the attack, both with regard to the countries that supported the Israeli occupation and the messages that the Iranian side delivered with its attack. 

In the context of talking about the countries that supported the Israeli occupation, the role of Jordan emerged, which announced that its air force confronted foreign objects in its airspace, although Tehran confirmed that it informed the neighboring countries of occupied Palestine 72 hours before the attack, and in this regard, an article published by the Lebanese newspaper Al-Akhbar pointed out that “the Jordanian participation in intercepting Jordanian missiles and drones came to assure the Jordanians that the Jordanian Air Force is there to defend Israel, and that supporting Gaza does not move it, especially since America is establishing its military bases on most of the Kingdom’s territory from north to south under the US-Jordanian defense agreement, and Jordanian citizens consider them a violation of their country’s sovereignty, so Jordanians participated on social media, Gazans who celebrated the Iranian response that broke the prestige of the occupation forces and eased the burdens on Gaza.

On the other hand, Hebrew reports praised the Jordanian support for the occupation army in repelling the Iranian attack, stressing that the Jordanian-Israeli coordination returned them to the era of King Hussein and Yitzhak Rabin and published in this regard the newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth an article that clarified the state of Jordanian-Israeli cooperation, stating: “Jordanian capabilities were exposed, and Jordanian air force planes defended Jordanian airspace and attacked Iranian drones, and for a moment cooperation between the Kingdom and Israel, overt and covert, returned to its best days during the reign of King Hussein and Yitzhak Rabin.” “There is no doubt that Jordan’s decision to stand by Israel against Iran can be seen as a big surprise.”   

“American, British and Jordanian warplanes have played a particularly important role in countering Iranian drones,” the Wall Street Journal said, noting that “despite public anger over the deaths of tens of thousands of Palestinians during the war in Gaza, Jordan and other partners have helped Israel counter Iranian missiles and drones.” 

With regard to the nature of the attack, some observers and analysts wondered why Iran announced the start of its attack hours before the arrival of missiles and drones to its targets, and some of them pointed out that this announcement would weaken the Iranian position, and in this context, The Guardian published: “Iran gave Israel and its partners plenty of time to prepare for the attack, and Iran also participated in talks through the back channels to clarify that it does not seek to ignite a war, and once the attack ended, the Iranian mission to The United Nations said in a statement that it could be considered over.”   

In turn, Asharq al-Awsat newspaper noted in an article published to the post-Iranian attack stage, pointing out that the night of the Iranian attack “confirmed that there was an important change in the rules of the previous game and opened the door to questioning the new rules of engagement. The truth is that the night began before dark, when the master of the White House interrupted his vacation and returned to meet with his leadership staff, the world has to stay up late, and that’s what happened.” 

It is noteworthy that the Hebrew reports confirmed the existence of a division in the Israeli occupation government over dealing with the Iranian attack, while American leaks confirm that US President Joe Biden made it clear to Benjamin Netanyahu that his country will not be part of a possible Israeli response against Iran, in turn, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard confirmed that any Israeli move against Iran will be met by a harsher and stronger Iranian response, declaring:  “We have begun a new page of engagement with the Zionist enemy.”
