"Israel" did saturday's attack on Iran: WSJ citing US officials
This marks the first attack carried out under the new far-right coalition government led by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who just recently conducted one of the most violent raids against Palestinians in Jenin.
The Wall Street Journal reported, citing "US officials and people familiar with the operation," that "Israel carried out a drone strike targeting a defense compound in Iran," and that the US and "Israel" were both looking for "new ways" to "contain Tehran’s nuclear and military ambitions."
This confirms three things: the first, is that "Israel" is indeed the author of such aggression.
Second, the drone attack demonstrated a clear show of despair as the US and "Israel" scramble to look for new ways to weaken Iran.
Third, the West is once again undermining Iran's efforts to push for a peace agenda via the revival of the JCPOA agreement.
The report states that this marks the first attack carried out under the new far-right coalition government led by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who just recently conducted one of the most violent raids against Palestinians in Jenin.
The strike also comes as Israeli and US officials are "discussing new ways to combat Iran’s 'destabilizing' operations, including its deepening military cooperation with Russia," the report states.
This is clearly a good sign as growing Western concerns indicate US hegemony is standing on shaky grounds.

A week ago, CIA Director William Burns made an unannounced trip to "Israel" a few days ago "to discuss Iran and other regional issues," the report states.
It adds that Secretary of State Antony Blinken is expected to arrive in "Israel" on Monday to continue the talks.
The report states that it was informed a week ago by "Israel's" top general, Herzi Halevi, that the US-Israeli military exercises known as Juniper Oak 23 sent "a very clear message to Iran: "If Iran makes mistakes, offense capabilities are getting ready."
The White House announced last month that, "there is no current progress in the Iranian nuclear agreement, and there is no expected progress in the near future" yet it is unclear if influence from the Gulf states will effect any change in the US' position.
Indeed, talks about reviving the JCPOA agreement have recently begun to resurface after Oman and Qatar assisted Iran with the provision of information from parties involved in the negotiations.
The main argument that the report is making is that the US did "Israel" a favor by stalling the nuclear agreement.
However, the US is now expecting "Israel" to return that favor by supporting Ukraine against Russia.

It says that "Israel" brushed off US' pressures to send Ukraine military aid at risk of deteriorating its relations with Russia.
Although "Israel" is not expected to provide Ukraine with direct military aid, it is likely that it will continue to pursue covert strikes against Iran, the report states.
In May 2022, "Israel" reportedly conducted a similar aggression that Iran thwarted by taking down quadcopter drones on a military facility.
In 2021, another similar attack occurred when Iran’s Atomic Energy Agency said it had thwarted an attack by two quadcopter drones.
