    While Iran bombarded Israel with rockets Saturday, U.S. and U.K. warplanes were downing some of the Israel-bound drones.

    Iran’s state-run IRNA news agency has claimed the multi-pronged attack involved rockets, ballistic missiles and drones fired at Israel from Syria, Iran, Iraq, and Yemen.

    Biden has stated his unwavering commitment to Israel and Britain’s Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has condemned Iran’s “reckless” response in the “strongest terms.”

    The Prime Minister said that the strikes risked “destabilizing” the Middle East and that the UK would work with its allies to “prevent further escalation.”

    British fighter jets took off from Cyprus on Saturday in order to intercept the drones and missiles launched from Iran towards Israel.

    Israel’s Channel 12 reported that US and UK fighter jets have shot down Iranian drones near the Syria-Iraq border.

    Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari, Israel Defense Force spokesman, said Iran launched over 100 drones directly from within its territory, in an apparent effort to overwhelm Israel’s air defenses.

    “We are working in close cooperation with the United States and our partners in the region in order to act against the launches and intercept them,” he said in a televised statement.

    Fearing the Iranian attack was near, the U.S. re-ordered it warships into position on Friday and moved the USS Eisenhower aircraft carrier and three other warships closer to Israel in the northern Red Sea.

    Multiple RAF transport aircraft were in the air over the eastern Mediterranean after the attack was first reported.

    RAF A400 took off from Brize Norton and headed for Syria.

    “The UK will continue to stand up for Israel’s security and that of all our regional partners, including Jordan and Iraq,” Rishi Sunak said in a released statement on Saturday. 

    “Alongside our allies, we are urgently working to stabilize the situation and prevent further escalation. No one wants to see more bloodshed.”
