EU, British PM back Israel’s right to defend itself from Iranian strikes
10 May 2018
The European Union on Thursday backed Israel’s right to defend itself and called on “all regional actors to show restraint” after widespread strikes against Iranian targets in Syria, in response to Iranian rockets fired towards the Golan Heights.
“Reports about last night’s Iranian attacks against Israeli army posts from inside Syria to which Israel responded by striking against Iranian targets in Syria are extremely worrying,” the European External Action Service (EEAS) said in a statement.
“As the EU has said repeatedly, Israel has the right to defend itself,” the statement added.
