France will summon the Iranian Ambassador over Tehran’s airborne attack against “Israeli” yesterday night. The French Foreign Minister “vowed a firm approach” - according to Agence France-Presse (AFP).

"I have asked the foreign ministry to summon the ambassador of Iran tomorrow to express... a message of firmness," France’s FM Stephane Sejourne said on television channel France 2, adding that it was "the Iranians who attacked Israel".

Earlier today, France warned citizens should temporarily leave Iran.

The French embassy in Tehran “recommends to French residents of Iran who can do so to temporarily leave the country,” the embassy said in a statement on its website. "They are asked to exercise the utmost caution in travel" and "to avoid any gatherings.”
