The US president has condemned Tehran’s “unprecedented air attack”

President Joe Biden has praised the US military and American servicemembers for helping the Israel Defense Forces to deflect a large-scale Iranian attack against military facilities in Israel.

“At my direction, to support the defense of Israel, the US military moved aircraft and ballistic missile defense destroyers to the region over the course of the past week. Thanks to these deployments and the extraordinary skill of our servicemembers, we helped Israel take down nearly all of the incoming drones and missiles,” Biden said in a statement published by the White House following his late night phone conversation with the Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu.

The US President has also reaffirmed “ironclad” commitment to protect Israel, while commending Israel’s “remarkable capacity” to defend against and defeat its adversaries. 

Biden said he would summon G7 leaders to discuss a joint response to Iran’s military action against Israel – indicating however that the reaction would be “diplomatic.” 

“We will remain vigilant to all threats and will not hesitate to take all necessary action to protect our people,” Biden stressed, while acknowledging the fact that neither US forces, nor facilities have been affected by Tehran’s retaliatory strikes.
