White House condemned Iran's rocket attacks on Israeli citizens as "unacceptable and highly dangerous"



The White House has condemned Iran's rocket attacks on Israeli citizens as "unacceptable and highly dangerous".
In a statement, the US administration called the missile attacks "provocative" and added: "We strongly support Israel's right to act in self defence.


"The Iranian regime's deployment into Syria of offensive rocket and missile systems aimed at Israel is an unacceptable and highly dangerous development for the entire Middle East."


Israel attacked dozens of Iranian targets in Syria in retaliation for 20 rockets being fired at its positions in the Golan Heights.


The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Right said the strikes killed at least 23 military personnel, including Syrians and non-Syrians.


The Russian military has claimed that Israel fired more than 70 missiles at Iranian facilities, adding that more than half were shot down by Syrian air defences.


Israel said it had attacked nearly all of Iran's military infrastructure including weapons storage, logistics sites and intelligence centres.
