An Israeli defense official told local media that more than 100 drones launched by the Islamic Republic of Iran have been shot down before ever reaching Israeli airspace.

The official credited the United States and the United Kingdom with shooting down the suicide drones, The Times of Israel reported.

A senior U.S. official told ABC News that the U.S. believes there could be up to 500 drones and missiles fired at Israel from Iraq, Syria, southern Lebanon, and Yemen — where the Iranians have terrorist proxy groups — but that the majority will come directly from Iran.

Israel’s Iron Dome also shot down numerous incoming projectiles, according to various videos posted to social media.


White House NSC Spokesperson Adrienne Watson released a statement on Iran’s “airborne attack against Israel” on Saturday evening

“President Biden is being regularly updated on the situation by his national security team and will meet with them this afternoon at the White House,” she said. “His team is in constant communication with Israeli officials as well as other partners and allies. This attack is likely to unfold over a number of hours.”

“President Biden has been clear: our support for Israel’s security is ironclad,” she continued. “The United States will stand with the people of Israel and support their defense against these threats from Iran.”
