7:27 pm
been any direct israeli interests struck or will the very public accusations and the very to the unprecedented nature of this ballistic missile attack for that specific reason given by the iranians. will that mean that some kind of military response potentially inside syria, again, will be forthcoming, relatively senior iranian military figures were killed in strikes attributed to israel just in the last few days. it also goes to, to further emphasize the need that israel places on its actions inside syria. one of the reasons that the prime minister natalie bennett has been publicly very low to criticize russia over its invasion of ukraine in recent weeks. because there is essentially tacit rational approval of those already a not challenging of those is radio strikes in syrian territory o an update now on the war in ukraine and that attack earlier on sunday, on
