Katz says Israel will attack Iran directly if retaliation to consulate attack originates there

An Iranian attack on Israel from its own soil, rather than via proxy groups, would invite an Israeli retaliation in kind, Foreign Minister Israel Katz threatens on X.

“If Iran attacks from its own territory, Israel will respond and attack in Iran,” Katz tweets in Hebrew and Persian, tagging Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.

The threat comes moments after Khamenei tells a crowd in Tehran that “the evil regime made a mistake and must be punished and it shall be,” referring to an April 1 attack on Iran’s consulate in Damascus allegedly carried out by Israel.
