BULLETIN: Iran has launched a series of drone attacks on Israel, Israel Defense Forces spokesman Daniel Hagari said. In response, Israel Defense Forces Spokesman Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari announced restrictions on civilian activities.

Israel said they were following the threat in their airspace and said the threat will take a number of hours to arrive in Israel.

CNN political and global affairs analyst Barak Ravid also said Iran had launched the attack using dozens of drones, citing four US and Israeli officials.

All U.S. embassies in the Middle East have been placed on high alert. Earlier today Iran seized an Israel-linked cargo ship in a military escalation.

On Friday, Biden warned Iran against retaliation even while predicting the attack may be imminent. “We are devoted to the defense of Israel. We will support Israel. We will help defend Israel and Iran will not succeed,” he said.

Just moments ago President Biden was rushed from his beach home in Delaware back to the White House. This page will be updated throughout the evening.
