“We are working in close cooperation with the United States and our partners in the region in order to act against the launches and intercept them,” he said.

Earlier on Saturday Israel warned that Iran would suffer the “consequences for choosing to escalate the situation any further” as fears grew of wider conflict more than six months into Israel’s war against Hamas militants in Gaza.
