The deadly attack killed seven Iranian Revolutionary Guard personnel, including two of the country’s military generals.

Iran’s Operation True Promise was a response to the deaths of seven Iranian Revolutionary Guard personnel in an attack believed to be orchestrated by Israel in Damascus on April 1. The following are the statements and attitudes of countries in the world regarding the outbreak of the Iran vs Israel war :

1. The President of Iran said about the retaliatory attack on Israel

Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi has opened his voice regarding the air attacks launched by Iran on Israel. Raisi said the operations launched against Israel were a legitimate form of self-defense. Raisi also praised the IRGC as “brave people” who “taught the Zionist regime a lesson”.

“The punishment of the aggressors which was the true promise of the supreme leader has been fulfilled,” Ebrahim said, as reported by Al Jazeera.

He added that the operation was “within the framework of the legitimate right of self-defense” in response to Israel’s aggressive actions. Raisi also said that Iran over the past six months, and also in recent weeks, used every means to demonstrate the “chilling impact” of the UN Security Council’s inaction regarding Israel’s violations of international law.

“We recommend supporters of the occupying regime to appreciate the responsible and appropriate actions taken by the Islamic Republic and stop blind support for this aggressor regime FOR4D,” he added.

2. Netanyahu: We Will Win!

Israeli Prime Minister (PM) Benjamin Netanyahu delivered a brief statement after his country was bombarded by a series of Iranian drone and missile attacks. Netanyahu insisted Israel would be able to “win”.

“We intercept, we repel (attacks), together we will win,” Netanyahu wrote in a statement in Hebrew via his official X social media account, as reported by Al Jazeera.

Netanyahu has not provided a lengthy official statement regarding Iran’s attack on Israel. However, before the Iranian attack occurred in the early hours of Sunday (14/4), Netanyahu stated that his country was ready to face an attack from Iran. He also emphasized that “whoever harms us, we will harm them”.

“In recent years, and especially in recent weeks, Israel has been preparing for a direct attack by Iran. Our defense systems have been deployed, we are ready to face any scenario, both defensively and offensively,” he stressed.

“The State of Israel is strong. The IDF (Israeli Armed Forces) is strong. Society is also strong,” said Netanyahu.

“We have established a clear principle: Whoever harms us, we will harm them. We will defend ourselves against any threat and will do so with calm and determination,” he stressed again.

3. China’s appeal

China expressed its concern about the escalation following Iran’s attack on Israel. China hopes that the relevant parties can exercise restraint in order to reduce further tensions. China called for ‘restraint’ in responding to the conflict after the attack. China said it was “deeply concerned about the current escalation”, and added that it called on “relevant parties to remain calm and restraint to avoid further escalation of tensions”.

China is known to have close diplomatic and economic ties with Iran, while the US in the past week has called on China to urge Tehran or the Iranian capital not to launch retaliatory attacks against Israel. However, US officials privately said they had seen no evidence that China had applied pressure on Iran, according to a Financial Times report.

4. The US condemns Iran’s attacks, but does not support Israel attacking back

US President Joe Biden strongly condemned Iran’s attack on Israel. Biden stated the US’s commitment to help Israel destroy all drones and missiles sent by Iran. Biden said he had directed US military aircraft along with ballistic missile defense destroyers to the region over the past week.

“Thanks to this deployment and the extraordinary skills of our military members, we helped Israel destroy nearly all incoming drones and missiles,” Biden said.

“I strongly condemn these attacks.” he continued.

Joe Biden reiterated his country’s steadfast support for Israel after a barrage of Iranian drone and missile attacks rained down on its ally. However, Biden emphasized that Washington does not support any form of Israeli retaliation against Iran. Biden made this assertion during a telephone conversation with Prime Minister (PM) Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday (13/4) US time or Sunday (14/4) Israeli time, after Iranian air strikes rained down on Israeli territory.

Tehran stressed that the series of airstrikes launched against Israeli territory was a response to what it called “the Zionist regime’s aggressive actions against the Iranian Embassy in Damascus” — referring to the Tel Aviv attack earlier this month. Iran also called its attack on Israel “legitimate self-defense” under the United Nations (UN) Charter. Speaking to Netanyahu by telephone, Biden “reaffirmed America’s steadfast commitment” to Israel’s security.

“I told him that Israel demonstrated an extraordinary capacity to defend against and defeat an unprecedented attack — sending a clear message to its enemies that it cannot effectively threaten Israel’s security,” Biden said.

However, according to a number of senior US government officials who declined to be named, Biden also made it clear to Netanyahu that the US would not participate in any offensive operations against Iran, and would not support such operations.

This region is important for global peace and security, and the UNSC FOR4D must act to prevent an escalation of the crisis, which could have serious consequences,” wrote the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs .

Qatar, one of the Arab countries close to Iran, expressed its concern about this latest condition. Qatar called on all parties to “stop escalation, defuse tensions and exercise maximum restraint.” Egypt, an Arab country in North Africa that borders Israel, stated that the current conditions were a direct result of what Egypt had warned about, namely the consequences of Israel’s war in the Gaza Strip.
