US 'supports Israel's efforts to defend its sovereignty'

US National Security Advisor Ambassador John Bolton expressed his support for Israel on Tuesday following the launch of IDF's Operation Northern Shield.


"The US strongly supports Israel's efforts to defend its sovereignty, and we call on Hezbollah to stop its tunneling into Israel and

to refrain from escalation and violence. More broadly, we call on Iran and all of its agents to stop their regional aggression and provocation, which pose an unacceptable threat to Israeli and regional security," Bolton said on Twitter.


The goal of Operation Northern Shield, which was launched this morning, is to expose and neutralize terror tunnels Hezbollah has constructed along the Israel-Lebanon border since 2006.
