Senior Iranian official: No immediate plans for retaliation against Israel

Iran has no plan for immediate retaliation against Israel, a senior Iranian official tells Reuters, hours after sources said Israel launched an attack on Iranian soil.

“The foreign source of the incident has not been confirmed. We have not received any external attack, and the discussion leans more towards infiltration than attack,” the Iranian official says on condition of anonymity.

Iranian officials say air defenses shot down three drones a few hours ago, triggering sirens.

Times of Israel staff contributed to this report.
