Live updates: Biden calls for G7 meeting after Iran launches over 300 drones, missiles at Israel

Iran Attack On Israel:Us Holds G7 Meeting Today

Iran launched hundreds of drones and missiles at Israel on Saturday, sparking President Joe Biden to call for a meeting of the G7 nations “to coordinate a united diplomatic response” to the “brazen attack.”

Biden said the U.S. and other allies helped Israel to intercept most of the projectiles. As of Sunday morning, it wasn’t clear how much damage was caused by the attacks.

The U.S. and Israel had anticipated Saturday’s strike, which came in retaliation for the April 1 bombing of Iran’s embassy in Syria. Iran said it now considers that matter “concluded,” but also warned Israel and the U.S. against any retaliation.

Biden told Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that since the attacks appeared to have caused minimal casualties and damage, the U.S. will not help in any counter-attacks against Iran, a senior administration official told NBC News.

However, officials are reportedly worried Israel will retaliate anyway.

“The gravity and volume of the attacks are unprecedented, and are a flagrant violation of Israel’s sovereignty, of international law, and of Security Council resolution,” the letter read in part. “Iran poses a direct threat to international peace, and brazenly violates the UN Charter and Security Council resolutions. The time has come for the Security Council to take concrete action against the Iranian threat.”
