Israel Resumes Activities In Wake Of Iran Bombardment

Monday, 04/15/2024

Israel's military announced that life would resume as normal on Monday in the wake of the Iranian missile and drone onslaught.

Schools were ordered to return and gatherings were given the green light in safe areas not affected by the Gaza war and Hezbollah bombardments in Israel's north.

"Following a situational assessment, it was determined that as of 00:00 Israel time tonight (Monday), changes will be made to the Home Front Command’s defensive guidelines," the announcement from the IDF said.

Initial warnings had braced the country for several days of possible strikes with many in the country working from home and postponing meetings awaiting new instructions.

On Saturday, Iran launched hundreds of projectiles towards the Jewish state in retaliation for an alleged Israeli airstrike on its consulate compound in Damascus this month.

The strike killed a top IRGC commander, the highest ranking assassination since the US killed Qassem Soleimani in 2020, along with several other IRGC top brass.

Iran's attack was the first time Tehran gave the command to strike Israel from Iranian soil, usually commanding its proxies in the region to act. In the wake of the Iran-backed Hamas attack, Israel has come under fire from Iran's militias in Gaza, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Yemen as the regime continues its bid to annihilate the Jewish state.

The aerial bombardment was deemed a failure in the West as Israel was joined by its allies the US, UK, France and even Jordan, to intercept the attacks, 99 percent of which was foiled. Multiple projectiles were also launched by proxies alongside the Iranian attack, but there were no deaths. One seven-year-old girl remains in a critical condition after shrapnel injuries in Israel's south.

In Jerusalem, home to the Muslim holy site at the heart of the Israel-Palestine conflict, projectiles threatened even the most treasured Al Quds, with Israeli defense systems protecting the Old City.
