Israel has not commented on the incident.
Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi said, “This act is a sign of the Zionist regime’s frustration and weakness in the region for which it will certainly pay the price.”
“The usurper and savage Zionist regime will pay for this crime,” said the IRGC in a statement.
Nasser Kanaani, a spokesperson for the Foreign Ministry, said in an interview, “Iran reserves the right to take necessary measures to respond to this action at the appropriate time and place.”
