Report: US cleared way for Iranian attack on Israel

Reports are surfacing that the US allowed a  "controlled" attack and promised Iran that it would do everything to prevent a reaction from the side of Israel.

An official in Turkey is claiming that Iran informed the US about the attack on Israel through a Turkish intermediary.

In response, the United States, through the mediator, sent a message "to ensure that the attack remains within clear boundaries," as reported by the Reuters news agency.

According to the report, Iran was instructed by the US on how to carry it out. It also appears that the Biden administration promised the Islamic Republic that it would do everything to keep Israel from carrying out a response.

After the attack, Biden demanded that Israel practice restraint contrary to the popular opinion among most members of the Israeli government that there should be a strong response.

MK Benny Gantz was one of the few members of the security cabinet who adopted the American approach and called for restraint.
