US ‘fully supports’ Israeli airstrikes against Iranian targets in Syria
The United States fully supports Israeli airstrikes in Syria, a Pentagon spokesman said, Metro reports.
It comes after Israel said it struck 12 Iranian and Syrian targets in Syria, including Syrian air defence systems.
Pentagon spokesman Adrian Rankine-Galloway said the US did not participate in the Israeli attack. "Israel is our closest security partner in the region and we fully support Israel’s inherent right to defend itself against threats to its territory and its people," Rankine-Galloway said.
