From wikishia

True Promise Operation, as it was called, is a natural and legitimate response to the Tel Aviv regime’s illegal airstrike on the Iranian consulate in Damascus on April 1, 2024, which resulted in the assassination of seven Iranian military officials, including a senior IRGC commander.[1] On the eve of April 14, 2024, the Islamic Republic of Iran launch a military operation directly from its soil on apartheid Israel’s colonial regime. This was the first time Iran directly attacked the Israeli-occupied territories. The US and UK has helped Israel shoot down Iranian drones but at least nine Iranian missiles, which Israeli air defense failed to intercept, struck two of the regime’s air bases and caused damages.

Assassination of Commanders and Iran's Determination for Response

The Israeli attack had resulted in the martyrdom of Brigadier General Muhammad Reza Zahedi, a commander of the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), his deputy, General Muhammad Hadi Haji Rahimi, and five of their accompanying officers.[2]

Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Khamenei, said that Israel "must be punished and it shall be" for attacking the Iranian embassy compound in Syria. Ayatollah Khamenei said in a speech marking the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan "when they attack the consulate, it is as if they have attacked our soil, the evil regime made a mistake and must be punished and it shall be" he added.[3] Iran's Permanent Mission to the United Nations said the country's military action against Israel was based on Article 51 of the UN Charter regarding the legitimate right to self-defense and in response to the deadly Israeli attack against the Iranian consulate in Syria.[4]

Regretful Punishment

Iran has retailed against Israel over the regime’s deadly attack on the Iranian embassy in Syria early this month. Iran says the attack targeted an Israeli airbase and an intelligence headquarters near Syria that were behind the deadly attack on the Iranian embassy. Hundreds of drones, ballistic and cruise missiles were used in the attack. In the attack, 185 drones, 36 cruise missiles and 110 surface-to-surface missiles were fired toward Israel, according to Israeli military officials.[5] It was conducted in several stages from multiple directions in order to suppress and overwhelm Israel’s missile shields. Tehran says the attack has achieved all its objectives.[6]

In IRGC's "True Promise Operation", it is announced , "In response to the numerous crimes of the evil Zionist regime, including the attack on the consular section of the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Damascus and the martyrdom of Iranian military commanders and advisors, in the early hours of the Sunday morning, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps' Aerospace Force together with other IRGC forces, as part of the punishment of that illegitimate and criminal regime, successfully hit targets inside the occupied territories with dozens of missiles and drones."[7]

Damage of Zionist's Regime

A hastily assembled coalition including the US and UK has helped Israel shoot down Iranian drones over Jordan, Iraq and Syria in an effort to blunt the attack and prevent an uncontrollable escalation.[8] A senior American official told ABC News that at least nine Iranian missiles, which Israeli air defense failed to intercept, struck two of the regime’s air bases and caused damage. Five ballistic missiles hit the Nevatim Air Base, damaging a C-130 transport aircraft. The official also said that four more ballistic missiles hit the Negev Air Base.[9] Israel spent over $1 billion on its defence to intercept Iran’s flurry of drone and missile strikes late on Saturday. "The cost of defence last night was estimated at between 4-5 billion shekels ($1.08-1.35B)," General Reem Adminaoch said, as quoted by the Israeli daily Yedioth Ahronoth.[10]

Source of Pride and Honor

At the same time as IRGC operations, groups of people in different cities of Iran such as Tehran, Isfahan and Kerman, came to the streets and celebrated.[11] Ayatollah Makarim Shirazi, one of the Shia authority described it a source of pride, honor and satisfaction for the Muslims of the world.[12]
