Will Israel respond to Iran’s first-ever direct attack?

The Israeli government says it’s weighing its options amid calls from allies to de-escalate tensions.

The smoke has cleared and the dust has settled after Iran’s unprecedented attack on Israel.

The weekend attack – the first direct military action targeting Israel from Iranian soil – was, says Iran, proportional retaliation for the bombing of its consulate in Syria.

Israeli leaders have vowed to respond.

Fears are growing of an escalation into a regional war.

Are those fears justified?

And what would a direct confrontation between the regional rivals mean for an already volatile Middle East?
