IDF: France helped in defense of Israel against Iranian missile, drone attack

Israel’s chief military spokesperson says that France was among the countries involved in defending against Iran’s overnight attack on Israel.

“France has very good technology, jets, radar – and I know they were contributing in patrolling airspace,” says Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari, adding that he did not have exact details on whether French jets had shot down any of the missiles launched by Iran.

Israeli officials said earlier this morning that the United States, Britain, and Jordan also all helped intercept the massive barrage of drones Iran fired at Israel overnight.

The IDF said the Iranian attack, the Islamic Republic’s first direct assault on Israel, comprised some 170 drones, 30 cruise missiles, and 120 ballistic missiles.
