The website of the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) recently published an article by Yigal Carmon, the organization's head, stating that Iran initially planned its attack on Israel with the intention of minimizing significant damage.

Carmon refers to a similar incident four years ago when Iran targeted the Iraqi base of Ain al-Assad, where US troops were stationed, in retaliation for the killing of Qasem Soleimani, the commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps' Quds Force, by American forces.

According to Carmon, the Americans were informed about the impending strike a day before it happened. Mohammad Javad Zarif, Iran's former foreign minister, claimed that the information was shared with Iraqi authorities in advance, who in turn informed the Americans, preventing potential casualties.

Carmon asserts that a similar scenario unfolded recently: Iran notified Jordan, Iraq, and Turkey about an imminent attack within three days. These countries then shared the information with the Americans, who subsequently warned Israel. Carmon noted, "When Hamas attacks, there are casualties. When Iran attacks, there are no casualties."

Regarding an incident in the south where a girl was injured, Carmon explains that it resulted from falling interceptor debris, not a direct missile hit, causing only minor damage to the airbase.

"Is it possible, under the influence of delusions of grandeur, to explain this as the result of Iranian weakness or idiocy? To do so, one would need to be very naive," writes the researcher.
