No action has been taken after an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council Sunday to discuss Iran’s missile attack on Israel.

But United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres urged maximum restraint.

“The middle east is on the brink. The people of the region are confronting the real dangers of a devastating full scale conflict,” Guterres explained, “Now is the time to diffuse and de-escalate. Now is the time for maximum restraint.”

Meantime, members of the Biden administration are reaffirming U.S. support for Israel following Iran’s attack against the country despite recent tension between the U.S. and Tel Aviv over the impact of the Israel-Hamas war in Gaza.

But the U.S. president is also urging Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to slow things down as Israel considers its response to Iran.

Steve Ganyard is with the U.S. State Department and says the shadow war between Israel and Iran that’s been going on for decades, is now out in the open.

“It’s the best thing for Netanyahu he could’ve ever asked for because now he doesn’t have to deal with the Iranian proxies – the Houthis, Hamas, Hezbollah. He can go right at Iran,” Ganyard detailed.

At the same time, G7 leaders, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, have released a statement saying Iran’s weekend attack on Israel marks a further step toward destabilization of the Middle East and risks provoking an uncontrollable regional escalation.

Iran launched 320 missiles and drones at targets inside Israel. Ninty-nine percent of them were intercepted with Iran since declaring the operation over.
