US preparing for Iran attack on US or Israeli assets

TEHRAN, Apr. 06 (MNA) – The US is preparing for a significant Iran attack on US or Israeli assets in the region as soon as next week, an American media outlet reported on Saturday.

The US is on high alert and actively preparing for a significant attack that could come as soon as within the next week by Iran targeting Israeli or American assets in the region in response to Monday’s Israeli strike on Iran's consulate building in Damascus, a senior administration official told CNN.

Senior US officials currently believe that an attack by Iran is “inevitable” – a view shared by their Israeli counterparts, that official said.

They anticipate that Iran’s attack could unfold in a number of different ways, he added.

A forthcoming Iranian attack was a major topic of discussion on US President Joe Biden’s phone call with the Israeli regime's prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday.

The Israeli regime attacked Iran's consulate in the Syrian capital of Damascus on Monday evening. The Israeli aggression led to the destruction of the entire building and the martyrdom and injury of the entire people inside it.

Seven of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) military advisors were martyred following the Israeli attack on Iran's consulate in Damascus on Monday, IRGC said in a statement.

Reacting to the Israeli aggression, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Nasser Kan'ani on Monday night said that the Islamic Republic of Iran, while reserving its rights to take countermeasures, decides on the type of reaction and punishment of the aggressor.
