Foreign Minister Israel Katz spoke with his British and French counterparts a short while ago and thanked them for their assistance in shooting down Iranian attack drones overnight, he writes on X, formerly Twitter.

He says that he emphasized Israel’s commitment to defending its citizens, and urges the two countries to “weaken the Iranian regime, to proscribe the IRGC as a terrorist organization, and to impose crippling sanctions on the Iranian missile project.”

“Iran must pay a price,” he adds.

Earlier today, France confirmed it had carried out interception missions, with Foreign Minister Stephane Sejourne saying without elaborating that France “took our responsibilities,” and carried out interceptions.
