WASHINGTON, The White House condemned Iran’s overnight rocket attack against Israel on Thursday as an “unacceptable and highly dangerous development” in the region.
“The United States condemns the Iranian regime’s provocative rocket attacks from Syria against Israeli citizens, and we strongly support Israel’s right to act in self-defense,” according to the White House in a statement.
Iran’s deployment of rocket and missile systems at Israel “is an unacceptable and highly dangerous development for the entire Middle East” and the Iranian military “bears full responsibility for the consequences of its reckless actions,” the White House said.
The US called on Iran and “its militant proxies, including Hizbollah, to take no further provocative steps.” It also called on all nations to respond to the “severe threat to international peace and stability,” the Iranian regime actions pose.
Israel launched strikes against many Iranian military installations in the neighboring Syria after it reportedly intercepted a dozens of rockets launched from there by Iranian forces towards the occupied Golan Heights.
