**Reiterates Support To U.S.

Israeli Prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu issued an unequivocal warning to Iran not to attack Israel.

He said he spoke for many of Israel’s neighbors in reiterating his strong support for the US killing of Iranian military commander Qasem Soleimani, a man the Israeli Prime Minister described as Iran’s “terrorist-in-chief.”

Addressing a conference in Jerusalem Wednesday morning, just hours after Iran launched a missile attack on military bases in Iraq housing US troops — and amid renewed Iranian threats to hit Israeli cities — the Israeli Prime Minister said, “Anyone who tries to attack us will suffer the most devastating blow.”

Netanyahu went on: “Qassem Soleimani was responsible for the death of countless people, he destabilized many countries for decades, and he was planning much worse. President Trump should be congratulated for acting swiftly boldly and resolutely against this terrorist in chief, who was the architect and driver of Iran’s campaign of carnage and terror throughout the Middle East and the world. What I am saying here today openly, and what I have said in recent days, many, many leaders in the Middle East think.”

He added, “Israel stands completely besides the United States … America has no better friend than Israel, and Israel has no better friend than the United States of America.”

He spoke after Iran fired more than a dozen ballistic missiles at two Iraqi military bases housing US troops. It comes days after President Donald Trump ordered a strike that killed Iran’s top general.

US and Iraqi sources said there were no known casualties as a result of the strikes.
