Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid has applauded the Biden administration after US airstrikes targeted “Iran-linked” positions overnight in Syria.

“We welcome the US strikes against Iranian Revolutionary Guards in Syria,” Lapid told Fox News. “Last night’s US strikes are an important step in the fight against terrorism.”

The US military action came in response to drone attacks on a base that houses US troops.

US Central Command said in a statement that “the strikes demonstrate our resolve to defend US forces and equipment.”

ISRAEL SAYS IRAN REFUSED OFFER FOR FINAL NUCLEAR AGREEMENT: ‘IT’S TIME TO WALK AWAY’

A few days before the signing of a new nuclear agreement, the Israelis are doubling their opposition to a new agreement.

Speaking in Jerusalem this morning, Lapid stressed that sanctions relief could lead directly to funding for Hezbollah and other Iranian proxies.

“On the table right now is a bad deal. That would give Iran $100 billion a year,” Lapid said. “He will fund more attacks on US bases in the Middle East.”

US officials today responded to Iranian comments on the JCPOA negotiations and that response is currently being reviewed in Tehran, according to Iran’s Foreign Ministry.

All sides appear to be making concessions, with Iran no longer demanding that its Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps be removed from the US list of foreign terrorist organizations.

“We have made clear our opposition to delisting the IRGC from the foreign terrorism list precisely because of its terrorist activities in the Middle East and beyond,” Lapid told Fox News.
