Iran Launches Drones and Cruise Missiles Against Israel

Iran Launches Drones and Cruise Missiles Against Israel

Iran has launched a retaliatory strike against Israel, in response to Israel bombing the Iran Embassy Compound in Damascus, Syria on April 1.

One-way "Kamikaze" Drones have allegedly been launched in three waves.   Cruise missiles reportedly followed those drones.

This is rapidly developing, more as I get it.

(I am back in New Jersey.  My wife and I were traveling back from PA when the attack took place)

UPDATE 5:19 PM EDT --

Sources inside the neighboring country of Iraq first spotted the Drone attack and sounded the alert.   Those same sources minutes later alerted to a SECOND WAVE of drones.

-- Iraqi Kataib Hezbollah announced the start of an operation against Israel!  This means SOME of the drones seen in Iraq were launched in Iraq! -- A 2nd wave of drones has been launched from Iran. In addition, Iran confirmed cruise missiles have been fired which take about 2 hours to arrive in Israel.

-- Iranian attack on Israel includes "hundreds of attack drones", Israeli official tells Axios' Barak Ravid.

-- Drones launched from Yemen! Reports of launches from all around Israel.

-- Jordan's air defense ready to intercept and shoot down any Iranian drones or aircraft that violate its airspace, two regional security sources say.

-- Tel Aviv is having widespread power outage/cyber attack.

-- White House: "The attack on Israel is likely to take several hours."

 

********** FLASH *********

Vladimir Putin: If the United States wants to come to the field to support Israel, we will not sit idle here, the smallest attack by the United States on Iranian soil will force us to support Iran.

-- Iran officially announced the launch of an attack on Israel  “The evil regime will be punished,” said Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

 

! ! PANIC BUYING IN TEL AVIV ! ! 

Supermarket Store Shelves in Tel Aviv were cleared out within ONE HOUR:

Panic Buying in Tel Aviv

(Hal Turner Remark:  This is yet another example of the "Masses who are Asses."  They have known for almost two full weeks an Iran attack was coming.  Did they "prep?"  No.   Like always, the Masses who are Asses waited until the last moment, then rushed out to panic-buy.   No sympathy for any of them.)

 

UPDATE 5:55 PM EDT --

Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) releases statement:

“In response to the crime of the Zionist regime in the attack on the consular section of the Iranian embassy in Damascus, the IRGC air force hit certain targets in the territories of the Zionist regime with dozens of drones and missiles.”

 

- Its called saturation attack, you drop everything you have from every point with ETA the same moment on the head of target from all directions

 

********** BULLETIN *********

Russian Fighter Jets have just entered IRAQ Air Space.   They will be able to intercept either US or Israeli war planes if any attempt is made to attack Iran.  

 

-- A United States Air Force (USAF) Boeing KC-135R Stratotanker declares emergency while it is flying over Southern Iraq during the ongoing Iranian attack against Israel.   RUMOR (not verified)  The Tanker was approached by RUSSIAN Fighter Jets and told to leave Iraq air space!

Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) has now launched Medium-Range Ballistic Missiles against Israel.

 

-- Sirens in northern Israel. Looks like Hezbollah is joining the assault. British Royal Air Force planes and the French Navy are also reportedly helping to intercept the drones.

 

Oh, Look!  MORE "Masses Who Are Asses"

From Haifa, Israel: Gas lines!

Haifa, Israel - Masses Who Are Asses - Gas lines

They've known for almost two weeks an attack from Iran was coming.  Did they gas-up?   NOPE!   Waited until the attack was actually happening and then rushed to the gas station - with all the other ASSES who waited, trying to get fuel.  

These gas lines are literally E V E R Y W H E R E . . . . so many brain-dead Zombies.   Their "normalcy bias" told them "nothing will happen."   Their "Reality Avoidance Syndrome" assured them, those of us who were warning them to prepare were just "Chicken Little, The Sky is Falling."   Look at them now . . . .

More Gas Lines

(HT NASTY REMARKS -- The typical, average, American, is just like this.  Kind-hearted, but not the brightest bulbs in the chain.   They have been told for over two years, (on my radio show) PREPARE with emergency food, water, medicine, flashlights, batteries, portable radio with spare batteries, First-Aid kit, guns, ammunition.  Did they do it?  A few did.  Most - didn't get off their ass for a single thing.  They were too busy watching the game and drinking beer.  Besides, they said "Nothing will happen."    Well, here you are:  Here's your "nothing."  Now run to the store and try to grab something to survive.   Fools.) 

 

 -- Iran declares that their hackers disabled the Israeli Iron Dome Defenses!! Attack maybe more lethal than expected!!
