The Iranian strike on Israel today resembles Russian attacks on Ukraine, according to an analysis from the Institute for the Study of War.

“Russian strikes have attempted to determine the optimal package to penetrate Western air and missile defenses,” writes ISW. “Russia has experimented with combinations of ballistic and cruise missiles alongside Iranian drones in Ukraine.”

Iran also has tested US Navy air defenses through Houthi drone attacks, according to the study.
