The UN Security Council (United Nations) meets this Sunday (14 April 2024) to discuss Iran’s attack on Israel on Saturday (13 April).

Yesterday (Saturday), UN Secretary General, António Guterres, stated that Iran’s attack against Israel was serious and called for an immediate ceasefire. In a note on social media, the head of the international organization said he still feared a devastating escalation of the war.

“I strongly condemn the large-scale attack launched tonight against Israel by Iran. I am deeply alarmed by the very real danger of a devastating escalation across the region. I urge all parties to exercise maximum restraint to avoid any action that could lead to major military clashes on multiple fronts in the Middle East. Nin the region, nor the world can afford another war.”, these Guterres.

Watch the meeting live:


The April 13, 2024, Iranian attack was expected. The country had promised to retaliate against the Israelis for the bombing that killed 8 people at the Iranian embassy in Damascus (Syria), on April 1, including a Revolutionary Guard general. Countries blamed Israel, despite the country not taking responsibility, although in the international community it is taken for granted that the order came from Tel Aviv.

According to the IDF (Israel Defense Forces), around 300 drones and missiles were launched by Iran. Israel claims that fighters from the country and allies, such as the USA and the United Kingdom, and the Iron Dome defense system intercepted 99% of the aerial targets.
