Following Israeli airstrikes that took out Iranian killer drones in Syria, United States secretary of state, Mike Pompeo said:

“Spoke with Israeli PM Netanyahu today regarding recent Israeli airstrikes in #Syria. I expressed my support for Israel’s right to defend itself from threats posed by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps & to take action to prevent imminent attacks against Israeli assets.”

Pompeo added “We discussed how Iran is leveraging its foothold in Syria to threaten Israel and its neighbors. The Prime Minister Netanyahu noted that Israel would strike IRGC targets threatening Israel, wherever they are located.”
