Israeli officials have confirmed the cessation of Iran's ballistic missile strikes, with reports indicating the imminent arrival of cruise missiles and drones targeting Israel.

Sources reveal that Iran's primary focus during this phase of attacks was the Israeli air base in the Negev region.

Following the initial wave of Iranian assaults, Radio Israel reported the activation of 720 sirens across various Israeli regions.

The Negev air base, a key target of Iranian missiles, is believed to have been involved in the attack on the Iranian embassy in Damascus.

Reports suggest that approximately 150 rockets were launched towards Israel in this recent series of attacks.

Arab sources have reported that the munitions for the Iron Dome and David's Sling missile defense systems in Tel Aviv have been run out.

Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) launched a retaliatory strike on multiple locations in Israel, in response to Israeli terrorist attack on Iranian embassy in Damascus, Syria on 1 April 2024.

On 1 April 2024, an Israeli airstrike destroyed the Iranian embassy in Damascus, Syria, killing 16 people, including a senior Quds Force commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Zahedi and Mohammad Hadi Haji Rahimi, a senior commander along with six other IRGC officers. Six Syrian civilians also were killed in the attack.

As diplomatic buildings are entitled to further protections from attack or other interference by the host country under international customary law, codified in the 1961 Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations and the 1963 Convention on Consular Relations, Iranian forces have launched a calculated strike against Israeli targets, signaling their resolve to defend Iranian territory and retaliate against perceived aggression.
