UK, Germany back Israeli right to defensive strikes against Iran in Syria

While France and Russia urged calm, the UK and Germany spoke up for Israel, with the spokesperson for British Prime Minister Theresa May launching an unusually strong defense of the Jewish state.

“We condemn Iran’s attack on Israel. Israel has every right to defend itself,” the spokesman told reporters.

“We call on Iran to refrain from any further attacks and for calm on all sides. We call on Russia to use its influence in Syria to prevent further Iranian attacks,” the United Kingdom said.

The German Foreign Ministry said: “We are deeply concerned by reports about last night’s Iranian rocket attacks on Israeli army outposts.

“These attacks are a severe provocation that we most strongly condemn. We have always emphasized that Israel has a the right to defend itself.

“At the same time, it is a key that the situation not escalate any further. This particularly means we must do everything we can to finally arrive a sustainable poetical solution to the conflict in Syria — it is needed to end the suffering of the Syrian population and to not further threaten stability in the region.”
