The United States seeks a “diplomatic response” to Iran’s attack against Israel last Saturday. A response that is already considered imminent, for which the Jewish State says it is prepared. Regarding the nature of the attack, four US officials have told NBC that they expect it to have a “limited scope” and that it will probably target key targets, but outside Iranian territory such as Lebanon, Yemen or Syria.

This is what these US officials believe due to the lack of significant damage in Iran’s attack on Israel on Saturday, which is why, they point out, the response it’s not going to be so forceful. Likewise, the Government of Benjamin Netanyahu will not directly attack the Persian country, but rather its allies: as Hezbollah in Lebanon, the Houthis in Yemen or Syria.

These sources base their information on the evaluation of the talks between US and Israeli officials that have taken place before Iran fired more than 300 drones and missiles at Israel on Saturday night.

However, officials have clarified that they They have not been informed of the final decision that Israel will make on how it will respond to the attacks. Likewise, they have detailed that their ally’s options could have changed since Iran’s attack. They also do not know when this response will be, but they assure that it could happen at any time.

Meanwhile, the US Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, has stated that Washington has spent the last 36 hours coordinating a “diplomatic response” to Iran’s attack against Israel last Saturday with the aim of avoiding an escalation in the Middle East.

Blinken made these statements to the media during an event at the State Department with the Iraqi Prime Minister, Mohamed Shia al Sudani, who will later meet at the White House with the president. American, Joe Biden.
