Israeli Occupation military spokesperson Daniel Hagari disclosed the outcomes of the Iranian assault on Tel Aviv using drones and missiles on Saturday evening.

During a press briefing on Sunday, Hagari asserted that 99 percent of the Iranian attacks were successfully intercepted.

He further noted that a minor portion of ballistic missiles breached the airspace of the Israeli Occupation territory.

The military spokesperson highlighted that Iran's attempt to dismantle the military base in the Negev was unsuccessful, emphasizing that the missiles launched from Iraq did not breach the territory's airspace.

Hagari revealed that Iran launched over 300 missiles and drones towards the territory, with 99 percent of them being thwarted. He also mentioned that some of the attacks originated from Iraq and Yemen in addition to Iran.

Iran conducted the assault on the occupied Palestinian territories "from its own soil" on Saturday evening.

The Iranian Revolutionary Guard confirmed launching an attack "with drones and missiles" on the occupied territories as retaliation for the recent bombing of the Iranian consulate in Damascus.
