U.S. Sends Top General to Israel Amid Reports of Iranian Retaliation for Israel’s Damascus Attack

HeadlineApr 12, 2024

The Biden administration sent top military commander General Michael Kurilla to Israel and has restricted travel for its embassy staff in Israel, as fears mount over a possible Iranian attack. The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday an attack in Israel could come by Saturday, though another unnamed source says Tehran has not made any final decisions. Iranian leadership vowed to retaliate following last week’s Israeli attack on a diplomatic site in Damascus, Syria, which killed top Iranian military officials, including Mohammad Reza Zahedi, a senior commander in the al-Quds Force.
