Sandu: “Moldova strongly condemns Iran’s attack on Israel”

The Moldovan government condemned Iran’s overnight attack on Israel and expressed its solidarity with the people of Israel. Moldovan President Maia Sandu added that Moldova supports the international community’s efforts to prevent the escalation of the conflict in the Middle East.

“Moldova strongly condemns Iran’s unprecedented missile and drone attack on Israel and fully supports the international community’s efforts to prevent escalation.

Our thoughts are with everyone who wants peace in the Middle East and the world,” Moldovan President Maia Sandu wrote on her X page (formerly Twitter).

The head of Moldova’s foreign ministry also issued a similar statement.

“Moldova strongly condemns Iran’s attack on Israel. We stand in solidarity with Israel and its people, as security in the Middle East is under serious threat and further escalation must be avoided,” Foreign Minister Mihai Popsoi wrote on his X page (formerly Twitter).


On the night of April 14, Iran attacked Israel with drones and ballistic missiles. The IDF claims that 99% of them were intercepted. The attack was supported by the Houthis and “Hezbollah.” Some of the drones were shot down in the skies over Syria and Jordan.

A few hours after the announcement of the attack, an air alert sounded throughout Israel. Telegram channels posted videos of Israeli air defense and missile interceptions. An explosion was heard in Jerusalem.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made an emergency address and said that Israel was ready for a direct attack from Iran and would respond in kind. The Israeli military said the drones would take several hours to reach Israeli territory.

Iran’s UN office later said the Iranian attack on Israel was over.

“The matter can be considered over. But if the Israeli regime makes another mistake, Iran’s response will be much harsher,” the mission said in a post on social network X.

The statement also said the attack was in response to an Israeli strike on the Iranian consulate in Damascus. The strike killed officers of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.
