    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - The United States will continue its “ironclad” support for Israel irrespective of government changes there, State Department spokesman Ned Price told reporters on Thursday.

    “Regardless of what government is in place, our stalwart support, our ironclad support for Israel will remain [...] Nothing about that will change even if there is a change in government,” Price said during a daily briefing.

    On Wednesday, Israel’s opposition leaders announced that they had succeeded in setting up a broad coalition to oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after 12 years of uninterrupted rule.

    Price declined to comment on the government formation in Israel “while it is in process.”
