Israel retaliates against Iran, U.S. official says --U.S. will "continue to deploy" sanctions to counter any further action by Iran | 18 April 2024 | Israel, early Friday morning local time, launched missiles in a retaliatory strike against Iran, a senior U.S. official told ABC News. The missile launches follow Iran's attack last Saturday, where the country sent a volley of more than 300 un-crewed drones and missiles toward targets throughout the country, Israeli military officials previously said. All but a few were intercepted by Israel and its allies, including the United States, officials said. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the country's war cabinet have met several times since the Iran strikes, and as ABC News previously reported, at least two strikes were previously aborted.
