Gilad Erdan, Israel's Permanent Representative to the United Nations, urged the global community to denounce Iran's assault on Israel, echoing the sentiments expressed by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky during the emergency U.N. Security Council session on April 14th.

"For the past years, Ukrainian civilians have been killed from the skies with Iranian weaponry," Erdan said. "President Zelensky, in condemnation of Iran's attack last night, said, and I quote, 'the sound of Iranian Shahed drones, a tool of terror, is the same in the skies over the Middle East and Europe. This sound must serve as a wake-up call to the free world.' Listen to President Zelensky and wake up."

On the night of April 14th, 2024, Israel was targeted by Iran using more than 300 drones and missiles. The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), alongside U.S., UK, French, and Jordanian forces, successfully intercepted the projectiles with a 99% success rate, resulting in 12 injuries overall.
