Mission accomplished as Iran depletes Israel’s air defense munitions… defensive action “likely cost over $1 billion”
04/19/2024 // Ethan Huff // Views

Iran has completed its retaliatory attack on Israel after the Zionist state bombed the Iranian consulate in Damascus. It cost Iran very little to do this, reports indicate, while Israel depleted its air defense munitions at a cost of around $1 billion.

Brigadier General Reem Aminoach, a former financial adviser to Israel's military, stated that Israel's defense costs for just the one night that Iran retaliated for the embassy were massive, while Iran spent next to nothing.

"The defense tonight was on the order of 4-5 billion shekels (between $1 and $1.3 billion)," Aminoach estimated as to the cost of defending against the Iranian attack.

Iran, meanwhile, only spent the equivalent of less than $100 million to attack Israel, deploying more than 300 drones and missiles in retaliation for Israel's attack on the Iranian embassy in Syria.

While Israel claims to have intercepted about 99 percent of Iran's missiles, a few of them reportedly penetrated Israel's defense systems before striking the Nevatim Airbase in southern Israel.

"If we're talking about ballistic missiles that need to be brought down with an Arrow system, cruise missiles that need to be brought down with other missiles, and UAVs [unmanned aerial vehicles], which we actually bring down mainly with fighter jets, then add up the costs: $3.5 million for an Arrow missile, $1 million for a David's Sling, such and such costs for jets – an order of magnitude of 4-5 billion shekels," Aminoach stated.

Israel's Arrow system, by the way, was designed to intercept long-range missiles such as the ballistic missiles Iran launched on Saturday, as well as the long-range missiles being fired by the Houthis in Yemen. David's Sling was designed by Israel to intercept medium- to long-range rockets and missiles.

Israel desperately wants U.S. support for war on Iran

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu knew exactly what he was doing when he launched an attack on Iran's embassy in Syria. The goal was and still is to goad the United States into backing a full-scale war on Iran, which the Biden regime is unwilling to do.

For at least the third time in 14 years, Israel is trying to garner U.S. support for eliminating Iran – but it is not working. As support for Israel fades around the world amid a shocking death toll in Gaza, Netanyahu is positioning to throw everything he can at Israel's neighbors.

Iran has stated that it will not strike Israel if there is a ceasefire in Gaza, which Netanyahu is refusing to agree to unless all the remaining Israeli hostages are released from Gaza.

The entire West is urging Israel to leave Iran alone, with President Biden telling Israel in one word: "Don't." But this is not stopping Israel from moving forward with its plans, which in turn allowed Iran to demonstrate its firepower on the world stage.

"Tehran wanted to establish a precedent that it could hit Israel directly without triggering a full-scale war," reported Middle East Eye. "It wanted to tell Israel that it could hit it."

"It wanted to tell the U.S. that Iran was a power in the Gulf that was here to stay and which controlled the Strait of Hormuz. It wanted to tell every Arab regime that kowtows to Israel that the same could happen to them."

All in all, Iran's attack on Israel was a strategic success. Israel continues to look like the bully on the block, and this as its October 7 narrative continues to shatter.
