The Israeli military said Sunday that Iran's attack using hundreds of drones and missiles had been "foiled", with 99 percent of them intercepted overnight.

"The Iranian attack was foiled," Israeli military spokesman Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari said in a televised statement.
None of the drones and cruise missiles that were launched towards Israel had entered its territory, Hagari said, and "only a few" ballistic missiles reached Israel, reports BSS.
One of them "lightly hit the Nevatim base", he added, noting that the military compound was "still functioning".
Defence Minister Yoav Gallant said in a statement: "Together with the United States and additional partners, we managed to defend the territory of the State of Israel."
"The campaign is not over yet -- we must remain alert", Gallant added.
