Iran has initiated an airborne attack against Israel, confirmed by White House National Security Council spokesperson Adrienne Watson. President Joe Biden is actively monitoring the situation and has scheduled an urgent meeting with his national security team this afternoon at the White House.

According to Watson, the ongoing attack "is likely to unfold over a number of hours," signaling a serious and prolonged engagement. The U.S. President has been kept up-to-date by his advisors and is in "constant communication with Israeli officials as well as other partners and allies," reflecting the gravity of the situation.

Biden has reiterated the United States' unwavering commitment to Israel's security amidst these developments. "Our support for Israel’s security is ironclad," stated Watson. The U.S. is poised to support Israel's defense efforts against the threats posed by Iran, aligning with Biden's firm stance on supporting its key ally in the region.

The international community watches closely as the implications of this conflict could have far-reaching consequences for the stability of the Middle East. The attack comes amidst already high tensions in the region, and the direct involvement of Iran marks a significant escalation in the conflict dynamics.
