Israeli threats of retaliation following Iran's recent drone and missile attack have stirred deep concern among Iranians already grappling with economic hardships and increased social and political restrictions post-2022-23 protests.

Iranian leaders have issued warnings of further escalation in response to any Israeli action, raising fears of heightened conflict and its dire consequences for ordinary citizens.

Hesam, a 45-year-old teacher from Amol, voices apprehension about the potential economic strain and jeopardized safety for families like his.

Parvaneh, a 37-year-old mother in Yazd, expresses worry about the devastating impact an Israeli strike could have on an already fragile economy, especially for middle and lower-income families.

While some, like government employee Hossein Sabahi from Tabriz, express pride in Iran's retaliatory actions, the underlying economic realities paint a grim picture. The surge in demand for hard currency and the plummeting value of the rial highlight the immediate repercussions of war jitters on the economy.

Amidst these tensions, concerns arise within Iran's leadership about dissent and potential social unrest. The Revolutionary Guard Corps issued a warning against pro-Israeli sentiments on social media, fearing a resurgence of protests fueled by economic frustration.

The decision of some Western governments to evacuate their diplomats' families further fuels anxiety among Iranians, evoking memories of past conflicts and revolutions. Mohammad Reza, an engineer in Tehran, reflects the prevailing sentiment of increased isolation and misery in the face of looming threats.

In summary, the specter of Israeli retaliation exacerbates the already precarious situation for ordinary Iranians, prompting fears of further economic strain and social unrest amidst escalating tensions.
