Iranian Foreign Minister Downplays Israel's Role in Recent Attack, Calls Weapons "Like Toys"

Iran's Foreign Minister, Hossein Amir-abdollahian, refrained from confirming Israel's involvement in the recent attack on his country.

Iran (IMNA) - In an interview with NBC News' Tom Llamas, Amir-abdollahian described the weapons used in the attack as resembling "toys that our children play with – not drones." The interview took place in New York, where Amir-abdollahian was attending a UN Security Council session.
Earlier that day, at around 4 am, the air defense of the eighth hunting base of the Army Air Force in Isfahan had been activated for interception, and the sound of the air defense firing was heard in the northeast of Isfahan. Despite the attack, Amir-abdollahian stated that Iran was not planning to respond unless Israel launched a significant attack. He emphasized that "as long as there is no new adventurism by Israel against our interests, then we are not going to have any new reactions."
However, he warned that if Israel took a decisive action against Iran and this was proven to them, "our response will be immediate and to the maximum and will cause them to regret it." Amir-abdollahian revealed that the attack was intended to be "a warning" and that Iran could have targeted Haifa and Tel Aviv, as well as all the economic ports of Israel.
However, he emphasized that Iran's "red lines" were civilians and that the operation had a military purpose. In response to an Israeli attack on the Iranian consulate on April 1, Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps launched a missile and drone operation dubbed 'True Promise' against the Zionist regime on the night of April 13. The operation was conducted by Shahed 131/136 Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), Kheibar Shekan ballistic missiles, Emad ballistic missiles, and Paveh cruise missiles.
