Earlier today, Iran shot down a U.S. military drone near the Strait of Hormuz. President Trump responded with strong words, saying, ““They made a very big mistake … This country will not stand for it, that I can tell you.” And Israel’s greatest ally, Israel, had strong words in support of U.S. efforts to curb Iranian aggression:

Amid the rising tensions in the Persian Gulf region, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave his backing to Trump, appealing to “all peace-loving countries” to support American efforts to halt what he called escalating Iranian provocations.

Speaking Thursday at a reception in Jerusalem for New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, Netanyahu said that “in the last 24 hours, Iran has intensified its aggression against the United States and against all of us,” adding that “Israel stands by the United States and its military.”
