“Israeli” Defense Minister Yoav Gallant, during a tour of “Arrow 3” air defense batteries that intercepted Iranian drones and ballistic missiles last night, said that “Israel” experienced “one of the most dramatic nights ever.”

“Hundreds of missiles of various types were fired at the State of Israel including over 100 ballistic missiles fired from Iran, each with hundreds of kilograms of explosives,” he said.

Gallant claimed the Iranian attack was “completely contained except for a very small margin” and attributed it to “coordination and synchronization between the defense establishments of the State of Israel, the US and our partners.”

The Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) spokesperson Daniel Hagari claimed that the IOF’s air defense had a 99% interception rate of the hundreds of drones and missiles fired by Iran.

“Together with the US and other countries, we have established a strong and powerful alliance…and I want to say in this regard, kudos to the defense establishment, kudos to the IDF, and kudos to our partners,” he continued.

Gallant, joined by the US ambassador to “Israel” Jack Lew, took the opportunity to reiterate his calls to form an international alliance against Iran.

“We have an opportunity here to establish a strategic alliance against this serious threat from Iran, which threatens to put nuclear explosives on the heads of these missiles. This thing could be a very serious threat. The US, Israel and its allies stand shoulder to shoulder to defend against this threat.”
