Israel demands diplomatic sanctions against Iran

The Israel government has intensified efforts to counter Iran’s aggressive actions by calling on 32 countries to impose sanctions against the Iranian Revolutionary Guards and their missile program. This move follows Iran’s unprecedented direct attack on Israel, which occurred late on Saturday. Iran utilized over 300 drones, cruise missiles, and ballistic missiles in retaliation for an airstrike on the Iranian consulate in Damascus on April 1.

Despite the scale of the attack, the Israeli military successfully intercepted 99% of the aerial threats with assistance from the United States and other allies. The attack resulted in minor damage, including damage to a military base in the country’s south.

Israel Foreign Minister Israel Katz announced a diplomatic offensive against Iran, aiming to garner support from foreign leaders and ministers worldwide. Katz emphasized the need for sanctions on Iran’s missile project and advocated for designating the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist organization. Katz communicated with numerous foreign ministers and leading figures globally, urging them to take action against Iran.

Although Katz did not specify the countries contacted, the Revolutionary Guards are already designated as a terrorist organization by the United States and are subject to EU sanctions. Israeli officials have pledged to retaliate against Iran for its aggressive actions. Iran claimed that its weekend attack was in response to the airstrike on the Iranian consulate, which resulted in the deaths of seven Revolutionary Guards, including two generals.

Katz underscored the urgency of halting Iran’s actions, emphasizing that decisive measures must be taken promptly. This diplomatic offensive signals Israel’s determination to address the escalating tensions with Iran and protect its national security interests.
