Iran bombs Israel

Israel says it has, with the help of its allies, intercepted a majority of more than 300 drones and missiles launched by Iran.

It says there were a small number of hits on its territory, including at an IDF base in southern Israel, where one person has been injured.

Iran’s unprecedented, retaliatory attack marks the first time it has targeted Israel directly from its own soil.

Sirens sounded across Israel and loud explosions were heard over Jerusalem, with air defence systems shooting down objects over the city.

President Biden has told Israel that American support for its ally is “ironclad”, adding that the US helped “take down nearly all of the incoming drones and missiles”.

UK Defence Minister Grant Shapps condemns the “senseless attack” and says additional RAF jets have been deployed to the region.

Iran earlier warned that Israel would be “punished” for a strike on its consulate in Syria on 1 April, which Israel has not officially acknowledged.
