The New York Times reported on Sunday, citing sources in Jerusalem, that Israel gave up on the idea of carrying out a retaliation assault on Iranian territory after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and U.S. President Joe Biden spoke over the phone on Saturday.

The publication said that the Iranian drone and missile assaults "caused relatively minor damage" as one of the reasons for the decision.

During the discussion, Biden allegedly informed Netanyahu that his government would not back any aggressive measures against the Tehran regime.

In what Tehran claims is reprisal for Israel's April 1 death of three commanders of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps in Syria, the Islamic Republic launched more than 300 missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles into Israel throughout the night of Saturday.

After a grievous head wound sustained in the assault, a 7-year-old Israeli Bedouin girl had surgery on Sunday and is still in critical condition, according to Jewish News Syndicate, which examined a paywall-protected piece from The Times.

Calls from coalition members to reestablish deterrence against Tehran prompted Israel's War Cabinet to meet on Sunday to debate the nation's reaction to the Iranian strike.
