On Pompeo’s first Mid East trip, Saudis strike Houthi leaders, missiles hit Iranian targets in Syria
In Tel Aviv, Israel’s security cabinet was called into emergency session Monday, April 30 to hear an “operational intelligence briefing” from Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. No explanation was offered for the exceptional, unannounced session. Some sources tied the meeting to the missile strikes Sunday night on two Shiite command posts outside Hama and Aleppo in Syria that operate under Iranian Revolutionary Guards command. Various sources reported that 18 Iranian and Shiite personnel were killed.
