Israel weighs response after Iran fires missile barrage

  • The Israeli war cabinet has reviewed military plans for a potential response against Iran, an official said. The cabinet remains determined to act, but it's not clear if a decision has been made. Israel has vowed to "exact a price" after the unprecedented large-scale drone and missile attack.
  • US President Joe Biden addressed Iran’s attack for the first time publicly Monday, saying he remains focused on Israel’s security, reaching a Gaza ceasefire and hostage deal and preventing the conflict from spreading.
  • Iran’s attack on Israel was “legitimate” and “responsible,” Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Nasser Kanaani said Monday. Tehran is not seeking to raise tension but will take “proportionate action” to defend itself, he said.
  • Meanwhile, Israel was set to take its first steps toward a ground offensive on the Gaza city of Rafah but delayed the campaign after Iran’s attack, Israeli sources told CNN.
