Israel, Armed Conflict / War, Level 3: Reports of possibly imminent Iranian missile attacks – Israel

2024-04-11: According to media reports, the US government believes that major missile attacks by Iran or its allies are imminent in Israel. The Iranian news agency Mehr announced on Wednesday (10 April) in a post on Twitter/X, which has since been deleted, that the airspace over Tehran had been closed due to military drills. The publication was later denied by the news agency. The German airline Lufthansa had already suspended flights to Tehran due to the security situation. Following an Israeli airstrike on the Iranian embassy in the Syrian capital Damascus, the Iranian government announced retaliatory strikes against Israel and Israeli embassies worldwide.
Travellers in the region are advised to closely follow news reports, to contact their embassy in the event of an escalation, to exercise high caution, to immediately seek shelter when receiving an alert for a rocket attack and to follow instructions from security forces. Air travelers should enquire about the latest flight information before travelling to the airport.
