Israeli officials said they feared attacks against Israel similar to those on Aramco facilities in western Iraq, according to an Israeli television report.
The report, published by the Israeli channel “24 News”, that the attack on Saudi facilities was a warning to the West and Israel, the importance of these attacks and what they are very concerned Israeli officials.
“This offensive capability can also be used against Israel, which requires the security establishment to be prepared to face the threat”, the report said.
According to the report, Israeli officials analyzed the results of the attack and reached a number of conclusions, most notably that “the surprise attack in particular, carried out from a relatively long distance at a depth of 650 km”, and exploited the scale of power by firing two types of weapons at the heart instead of accurate night attacks.
Iran has shown good intelligence power both by identifying and selecting targets or in determining the course of the attack and weapons, according to the report, which points to the ability to penetrate the Saudi air defense system, “despite the billions spent on it along the region that have proved ineffective with small and slow means of attack”.
Officials concluded that the accuracy of the attack was dramatic and unprecedented with less than three meters, and that Iran is a country with medium technological capabilities, capable of developing for itself missiles that enable it to carry out relatively long medium-sized attacks, accurate and effective.
Preventing Iran from approaching technology and equipment has not prevented it from developing its own capabilities, they said, citing “proven operational capabilities of the Iranians based on technological capabilities, intelligence infrastructure and practical coordination”.
“Therefore, it can be concluded that the Western monopoly on weapons is presumed to have dissipated.
The entire region and Israel have learned a lesson: sensing, detection and deterrence systems are insufficient to meet new threats”.
The report said that the attack on Saudi oil installations, which Iran has accused of carrying out despite denying the 650-kilometer accusations, could be carried out and target any point in Israel from western Iraq.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Iran was not involved in the attack on Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities and did not have to provide evidence.
He stressed that the attack on Saudi Aramco was from Yemen, warning that if the Yemeni war didn’t end, there would be much more severe attacks by Yemenis.
