    Coordinated and Integrated defense successful so far.

    Iran started the next phase of the Middle East Theater of WWIII with a massive barrage of drones, cruise missiles, and ballistic missiles from Iranian Territory at Israel.

    Here are the major points

    • Roughly 300 drones, cruise missiles, and ballistic missiles were fired on April 13, 2024.
    • This is the first time that Iran has fired on Israel from Iranian territory (approximately 900 miles).
    • Iranian is retaliating for an Israeli strike on April 1, 2024 that destroyed a meeting taking place in the building next to the Iranian Embassy in Damascus, Syria. The dead included Gen. Mohamad Reza Zahedi, 65, who oversaw Iran’s covert military operations in Syria and Lebanon, two other generals and four officers in the Quds Force.
    • Two key facilities in Iran supported the launches - Bakhtarun and Khorramabad (also known as Imam Ali). There are extensive hardened underground preparation, fueling, assembly, and launch facilities at these two locations.
    • Barrage occurred after seizure of MSC Aries in Straits of Hormuz - ship ownership further traces to Israeli shipping magnate Eyal Ofer. This is an expansion of the Red Sea Naval War.
    • Jordan and Saudi Arabia engaged and shot down a significant number of the Iranian attempts to strike Israel.
    • The US and UK supported the inner defense layer along with Israeli capabilities.
    • UK flew from Cyprus to support. US elements in the Red Sea, Cyprus, Mediterranean, and other locations provided support.
    • Remote Access Cyber operations by multiple countries likely played a role to disrupt the Industrial Control Systems supporting Iranian C4I including the Iranian preparation and launch facilities.
    • A resounding success so far.
    • Iran threatened any country allowing Israeli overflight in counter-attacks (i.e. Jordan, Saudi Arabia, UAE, and others).
    • Russia threatened regional war against the US if the US strikes Iran.
    • Iran and China now ask for calm.
    • We are in WWIII. September 1939 was October 2023.
