Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari, spokesperson for the Israel Defense Forces, released a one-minute video response to the Iranian capture of the ship. “Iran will bear the consequences for choosing to escalate the situation any further,” he said. “We have increased our readiness to protect Israel from further Iranian aggression. We are also prepared to respond.”

In remarks during a Friday event at the White House, U.S. President Joe Biden said he had expected an Iranian retaliation “sooner than later,” issuing a one-word warning for the country: “Don’t.”

“We are devoted to the defense of Israel. We will support Israel. We will help defend Israel.  And Iran will not succeed,” Biden added.
