Dispatch from Jordan

Iran launched more than 300 missiles and drones toward Israel Saturday night in a barrage that might prove a turning point in regional hostilities. Israel and its allies intercepted almost all of the missiles and drones, after Iran announced the attack in advance. The World’s team in Jerusalem recorded these sounds before running down into a shelter on Saturday night. They then made their way to Amman, Jordan, where Marco Werman and Matthew Bell filed this dispatch.
