IDF Spokesperson, Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari, responded late Saturday night to Iran's attack on Israel, which saw the launch of over 100 UAVs, as well as cruise missiles.

"Iran has launched a direct attack from Iranian soil toward the State of Israel," Hagari said. "We are closely monitoring Iranian killer drones that are en-route to Israel sent by Iran."

He stressed, "This is a severe and dangerous escalation."

"Our defensive and offensive capabilities are at the highest level of readiness ahead of this large- scale attack from Iran.

"Together with our partners, the Israel Defense Forces is operating at full-force to defend the State of Israel and the people of Israel. This is a mission that we are determined and ready to fulfill."

Hagari explained, "Iran has launched unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) from its territory toward the State of Israel. We are monitoring these aerial threats - this is a threat that takes several hours to reach Israeli territory. The IDF and the Israeli Air Force are implementing the plan we prepared in advance."

"As part of the preparations, GPS services will not be available in certain areas - the disruption is deliberate and according to plan. If we detect additional threats with a shorter arrival time, we will update you immediately."

He stressed, "Continue to act responsibly and calmly, as you have done so far, and be sure to follow the guidelines. The IDF is prepared and ready across all its defensive and offensive systems; we have prepared for a variety of scenarios in advance."

"We are operating in close cooperation with the U.S and our partners in the region to counter the launches and intercept them. We have several layers of protection from the Israeli Air Force and Navy as well as additional layers of protection from the U.S. military. We have an excellent Aerial Defense Array which is fully operational, but remember - the defense is not hermetic. Therefore, it is crucial to adhere to the guidelines and follow the orders of the Home Front Command - they save lives."
