The CIA has warned Israel that Iran will attack the country in the next 48 hours, it has been reported.

Israel killed two Iranian military commanders with a strike on Tehran’s consulate in the Syrian capital Damascus this week.

Iran vowed that it would take revenge for the attack, and now foreign media is reporting that US intelligence is fearful of an attack on Israel.

Iran is said to be planning a combined attack with a “rain” of drones and missiles fired from its bases at strategic locations inside Israel, according to Al Mayadeen.

This comes after US officials raised fears that the Israeli strike could lead to a wider war in the Middle East.

Ralph Goff, a former senior CIA official who operated in the Middle East, said Israel’s strike was “reckless” adding that “it will only result in escalation by Iran and its proxies.”

Speaking to the New York Times, he added that Israel is trying to hit the Iranian Revolutionary Guard to “punish them for ongoing plots to kill or kidnap Israeli Jews around the world.”

Former US Central Command chief and retired four-star general Kenneth F. McKenzie warned the attack was a “blow” for Iran.

He also said “Iran’s options to hit Israel are very, very limited,” and “the Israelis aren’t going to back down.”
