Iran has launched an attack against Israel that is “likely to unfold over a number of hours,” according to National Security Council spokesperson Adrienne Watson, APA reports citing CNN.

“President Biden is being regularly updated on the situation by his national security team and will meet with them this afternoon at the White House,” and the team “is in constant communication with Israeli officials as well as other partners and allies,” the statement reads.

Watson reaffirmed the president’s position that “our support for Israel’s security is ironclad” and that the United States will “stand with the people of Israel and support their defense against these threats from Iran.”
