Islamic Jihad: Israel Has Lost Deterrence against Iran
"Israel's deterrence in the face of Iran has ended," the Islamic Jihad's deputy chief Mohammad al-Hindi said in an interview with Lebanon's Al Mayadeen.

Al-Hindi underscored that Iran's retaliatory attack served as a preliminary warning to the Israeli occupation.

"The balance of power is changing; America has its own problems and challenges, and Israel does not have the support or capabilities to assert dominance in the region," al-Hindi said.

"There are new rules of engagement today," he added.

He also criticized the complicity of the West in Israel's atrocities in Gaza, signaling the need for "reassessments" in the new geopolitical landscape of the region.

The Israeli regime attacked Iran's consulate in the Syrian capital of Damascus on April 1. The Israeli aggression led to the destruction of the entire building and the martyrdom and injury of the entire people inside it.

Seven of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) military advisors were martyred following the Israeli attack on Iran's consulate in Damascus, IRGC said in a statement.

In response to the Israeli aggression, Iran attacked the Israeli-occupied Palestinian territories with a barrage of drones and missiles early on Sunday.

Following the attack, Iran announced that it does not seek to create tension in the region and had carried out the anti-Zionist operation to punish the Zionist regime. However, the Iranian political and military officials have strongly warned that the country would give a severe response in case of any fresh Israeli aggression.
