Netanyahu meets top officials as fears of Iran attack on Israel grow

Tensions are high over the possibility that Tehran will retaliate for an air strike that killed senior Iranian commanders nearly two weeks ago.

US officials have told CBS News, the BBC's US partner, that a "challenging" major attack on Israel could happen imminently.

Israel has said it is ready "defensively and offensively".

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to meet members of his war cabinet, including Defence Minister Yoav Gallant and opposition figure Benny Gantz.

One US official CBS spoke to warned Iran could use more than 100 drones, dozens of cruise missiles and possibly ballistic missiles.

These would reportedly be aimed at military targets in Israel.

The official added that there was still a possibility Iran could decide to hold back.


I suggest we pay Iran a really spectacular bribe. Maybe an entire transport plane, filled with cash (gold is too heavy). If we start printing now, we could have enough in a week.
