IDF says it shot down 99% of missiles, drones from Iranian attack

The Israeli military has claimed that with a defense coalition of their international partners, they have successfully intercepted 99 percent of the aerial threats launched by Iran.

“IDF: Together with a defense coalition of international partners, we achieved a successful interception of 99% aerial threats launched by Iran,” said Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a post on X.

Lauding Israel’s preparedness, Defence Forces (IDF) Spokesperson Rear Adm Daniel Hagari said that this was a “significant strategic achievement.”

Hagari attributed the success to the combination of the IDF’s aerial and technological superiority and the collective strength of the allied coalition, which effectively neutralized the majority of the threats posed by Iran.

“As you can see now, the base is functioning and continues to perform its tasks. In the picture, you can see the runway at Nevatim,” he said, showing live footage from the airbase.

In the first-ever direct attack on Israel by Iran, the Islamic Republic on Saturday night launched a barrage of 300 attack drones and missiles from its territory towards the Jewish state, triggering air raid sirens throughout Israel on Sunday morning as the military tried to intercept the Iranian projectiles.
