War and conflicts: The War Cabinet consists of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Yoav Gallant, former Defense Minister Benny Gantz and several observers. The meeting will be held at 1 p.m. Norwegian time.

The conflict with Iran was also discussed by the war cabinet on Sunday evening.

Iran sent several hundred rockets and drones at Israel on Saturday evening and overnight into Sunday. This was Iran’s first ever direct attack on Israel, but almost all of the missiles and drones were neutralized.

The government in Iran says the attack was retaliation for the attack on an Iranian embassy building in Syria on 1 April. Here, two generals and several other members of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard were killed. Iran says Israel was behind the attack in Syria, and the US mean this is correct.
