Top Iranian generals say attack 'achieved its goals' despite success of Israeli air defenses

Top Iranian generals claimed that the country's attack on Israel "achieved its goals" on Sunday, despite air defenses from the U.S., Israel and elsewhere intercepting the vast majority of the barrage.

Generals Mohammad Bagheri and Hossein Salami responded to questions regarding the attack on Sunday.

"The operation achieved its goals," the generals said, going on to claim that Israel's air defenses were "incapable of dealing with the attack."

"The U.S. failed to thwart the operation," the generals added.

Iran launched some 300 missiles and drones toward Israel on Saturday, and roughly 99% of them were intercepted. President Biden lauded the Israeli defense as "remarkable" in a statement late Saturday.

"Israel demonstrated a remarkable capacity to defend against and defeat even unprecedented attacks – sending a clear message to its foes that they cannot effectively threaten the security of Israel," Biden said.

Israel shared footage of its air defenses in action over the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
