Iran says that there will be a terrible backlash; Europe announced sanctions against Iran

Washington: The United States and Europe have announced economic and political sanctions against Iran as part of a move to deter Israel from retaliating against Iran. National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said the US plans to impose new sanctions, and allies will follow suit. Earlier, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen also stated that US sanctions would be imposed.

European Union foreign policy chief Josep Borrell revealed that some member states have asked to extend sanctions against Iran. He announced this in Brussels after an emergency video conference of EU foreign ministers. Borel said the sanctions would be expanded to include blocking the supply of Iranian drones to Russia. Borrell said it would also prevent the delivery of missiles and deliveries to Iranian proxies in the Middle East.

The countries of the world, including the United States, are worried that things will get out of hand if they attack Iran. Therefore, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and US President Joe Biden tried to persuade Israel. The United States has also stated that it will not be involved in the counter-attack.

Japanese Foreign Minister Yoko Kamikawa also requested Israel to exercise restraint. Since the war in Gaza began in October, clashes have intensified between Israel and Iran-aligned groups operating in Lebanon, Syria, Yemen, and Iraq.

Israel says it will attack, Iran says there will be a terrible response..

The US Treasury Secretary, Janet Yellen, said that new sanctions will be imposed against Iran while the threat of Israeli attack continues. Israel has also announced that it has launched a diplomatic offensive against Iran.

Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi warned that even small setbacks would result in a terrible response. He also reminded that there would be severe and painful measures. At the same time, the Israeli army started a military operation in Beit Hanoun, a town in the north-east of Gaza, while the threat of war continued. Meanwhile, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said Hezbollah commander Ismail Youssef Baz was killed in an airstrike in the southern Lebanese town of Ain Baal. Hezbollah confirmed the incident. Israel has demanded sanctions against Iran’s missile program. The Tel Aviv Foreign Minister also confirmed that letters were sent to 32 countries with this demand.

On Saturday, Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Yemen launched a barrage of missiles and drone attacks against Israel. Most of them were defended by Israel and its allies. Tehran said the attack was in retaliation for Israel’s airstrike on its consulate in Syria on April 1, which killed 13 people. Since the start of the Israel-Gaza war, Israel has accused Iran of funding and arming Hamas.
