German Chancellor Olaf Scholz warns Iran not to launch another attack on Israel but says the Israeli government must also contribute to cooling tensions.

“Everyone agrees that the way in which Israel managed to successfully repel this attack… is really impressive,” says Scholz.

“That is a success that should not be given away, and therefore our advice is to contribute to de-escalation.”
