"Israel will never allow #Iran and its terrorist proxies in #Syria & Lebanon to endanger Israel's sovereignty and people," Rotem tweeted.
Addressing the Washington, D.C.-based Jewish Institute for National Security of America (JINSA) on October 10, Pompeo reiterated the US administration’s "unwavering support" for Israel.

Thank you @SecPompeo for taking such a clear stand on Israel's right of self-defence. https://t.co/rbGraUA4iJ
Over the last two years, Israel has struck Syria on multiple occasions, claiming that it targets Iran-backed forces, including Hezbollah. The nation has vowed to continue its air raids, despite the crash of the Russian Il-20 off the Syrian coast, which Moscow blamed on Tel Aviv and subsequent deliveries of Russia’s S-300 air defenses to the Arab Republic.
