Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly doesn’t want to get dragged into the escalating conflict between the United States and Iran in the Middle East.

Barak Ravid of Channel 13 Israel, posting in Axios on Wednesday, reported Netanyahu revealed his wariness at a meeting on U.S.-Iran tensions with Israel's intelligence chiefs and top military brass.

At the meeting, Netanyahu said Israel would make every effort not to get pulled into the escalation, and would not interfere directly in the situation, Ravid wrote, citing unnamed Israeli officials.

Israel was one of the main sources of intelligence on alleged Iranian plots against the United States and its allies in the Gulf region, Ravid noted. 

The United States has deployed additional military assets to the region — and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo earlier this week spoke with Netanyahu to coordinate their responses to rising tensions, Ravid reported.
