    Poland Condemns Iran’s Assault on Israel

    In an unequivocal statement released by Poland’s National Security Bureau (BBN), President Andrzej Duda condemned the recent Iranian attack on Israel, describing it as “a blatant and condemnable act of violence.” The statement underscores the urgency of ceasing further aggression and initiating immediate de-escalation efforts.

    Late Saturday into Sunday, Iran launched approximately 300 drones and missiles towards Israel, a retaliatory strike, per Iranian military statements, for the recent bombing of its consulate in Damascus—a bombing that resulted in the death of several Iranian officers, for which Iran has held Israel responsible.

    Israel’s military reported successfully intercepting 99 percent of the incoming threats. In anticipation of such incidents, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had previously stated that any direct attacks from Iran would be met with equivalent responses.

    The tension in the Middle East continues to escalate, with global leaders watching closely. BBN’s statement reiterates the seriousness of the situation and its implications for international security, highlighting ongoing surveillance of developments for any potential threats to Polish security.

    Prime Minister Donald Tusk assured the public via social media that the current situation does not pose a direct threat to Poland. This was followed by a brief condemnation of the attack by Poland’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

    The international community, including the European Union, Canada, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, and United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, has vocally denounced Iran’s unprecedented aggression. Their statements highlight concerns over the potential destabilization of the entire region.
