Financial Times:

Israel’s foreign minister demanded new sanctions on Iran on Tuesday as top officials met for a third straight day in response to Tehran’s weekend attack.

Foreign minister Israel Katz said on Tuesday morning that, “alongside the military response” Israel was considering, he had contacted dozens of countries as part of a “diplomatic offensive against Iran”.

He said he had asked them to support sanctions on Iran’s missile programme and declare the country’s Revolutionary Guards a terrorist organisation.

“Iran must be stopped now — before it is too late,” Katz wrote on X.

An Israeli government official added that the country was determined to respond to the Iranian attack on its territory, which included more than 300 missiles and drones.

But the official added that the five-person war cabinet — which previously met on Sunday and Monday — was taking into account US concerns that any action should “not be over the top”.

The meeting on Tuesday, which included Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, was not of the full war cabinet but instead a “security consultation”, the official said.

Iran has threatened to hit back at Israel again if the Jewish state retaliates.

President Ebrahim Raisi told the Emir of Qatar in a phone call on Monday night that Tehran’s response to “the smallest move against its interests will be fierce, massive and painful”, state media reported.
