US supports Israeli efforts to counter Iran’s military activity in Syria
The United States fully supports Israel’s right to defend itself against Iranian regional actions that endanger Israeli national security and the safety of the Israeli people, deputy State Department spokesperson Robert Palladino said.
"Iranian support of and supply to terrorist groups in Syria and across the region that have the clear intent and capability to strike Israel are unacceptable," the State Department website cited him as saying.
"The United States fully supports Israel’s right to defend itself against the Iranian regime’s aggressive adventurism, and we will continue to ensure that Israel has the military capacity to do so decisively," Palladino said.
“The commitment of the Trump Administration and the American people to ensuring Israel’s security is both enduring and unshakable," the spokesperson added.
