IAEA Work in Iran Continues as Planned Despite Israel
"The IAEA is continuing to implement its safeguards activities in Iran as planned," the IAEA indicated.

On the evening of April 13, Iran launched drones and missiles toward Israel in response to "repeated crimes" from Tel Aviv, including the attack on the consular office of the Iranian Embassy in Damascus ascribed to Israel.

On 1 April 2024, an Israeli airstrike destroyed the Iranian embassy in Damascus, Syria, killing 16 people, including a senior Quds Force commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Zahedi, and Mohammad Hadi Haji Rahimi, a senior commander along with six other IRGC officers. Six Syrian civilians also were killed in the attack.
