According to senior US administration officials quoted by US media, Washington's services expect an Iranian attack to happen soon. According to CBS News reports, this may happen on Friday, and according to the Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg – within 48 hours. Iran will use dozens or hundreds of drones and missiles. The US fears that the attack could come from Iranian territory, but – as it has so far – it could lead to a serious escalation by pro-Tehran militias such as the Lebanese Hezbollah.

Axios reports that Iran has warned against US intervention. In turn, US officials should pressure their Israeli counterparts to inform them in advance of a possible counterattack. According to the Washington Post, the Biden administration was frustrated by the lack of advance notice of the April 1 Israeli attack on the Iranian embassy in Syria, fueling tensions.
