Bahrain issues rare expression of support for Israeli strike on Iranian forces

In an extremely rare expression of support for an Israeli military operation, the foreign minister of Bahrain says all countries in the region, including Israel, have the right to respond to Iranian aggression.

“As long as Iran continues the current status quo of its forces and rockets operating in the region, then any country — including Israel — has the right to defend itself by eliminating the source of danger,” Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa writes on his Twitter account in Arabic.

Responding to Iranian missiles fired at the Golan from Syria, the Israeli Air Force overnight launched a major operation against Iranian targets in the country, wiping out much of Tehran’s military infrastructure there, according to the IDF.
