Speaker Johnson Urges Strong US Support Amidst Iran-Israel War

By    |   Saturday, 13 April 2024 08:55 PM EDT

Amidst the Iranian attack on Israel, House Speaker Mike Johnson, R-La., has emphasized the imperative of unwavering American support for the embattled Middle Eastern nation, asserting the need for resolute action against Iran's aggressive actions.

Johnson underscored the gravity of the situation, emphasizing the necessity for robust U.S. backing for Israel. In a statement posted on X, Johnson declared, "As Israel faces this vicious attack from Iran, America must show our full resolve to stand with our critical ally. The world must be assured: Israel is not alone."

Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps launched a barrage of drones and missiles targeting Israel, intensifying the long-standing conflict between the two regional adversaries. The attack, which occurred on Saturday, has raised concerns of a significant escalation in hostilities.

In response to the assault, the White House swiftly reaffirmed the United States' unwavering commitment to Israel's security, promising steadfast support for the nation's defense, Fox News reported. The attack, comes in the wake of escalating tensions fueled by recent events in the region.

Johnson further expressed his intent to engage with the White House, advocating for a decisive response to the aggression from Iran. He criticized the Biden administration's approach, accusing it of undermining Israel and appeasing Iran, which, he argued, has exacerbated the current crisis.

"I will continue to engage with the White House to insist upon a proper response," Johnson affirmed, highlighting the urgency of addressing the evolving situation in the Middle East.

The White House, meanwhile, assured that President Joe Biden remains closely briefed on developments, with plans to convene with his national security team to assess the situation.

Amidst growing concerns over the potential ramifications of the Iranian attack, the U.S. reiterated its commitment to safeguarding Israel's security interests.
