Biden tells Netanyahu Israel proved itself to its foes with defensive showcase

US President Joe Biden says the US helped Israel take out almost all drones and missiles fired at it in a “unprecedented attack” against Israel, using defenses and planes moved to the region over the past week.

“Israel demonstrated a remarkable capacity to defend against and defeat even unprecedented attacks – sending a clear message to its foes that they cannot effectively threaten the security of Israel,” Biden’s office says in a statement describing his call with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Biden says he and other Western leaders will “coordinate a united diplomatic response” to Iran’s attack, indicating that a military response is not currently on the table.

The statement says the attack on Israel was only on military facilities.
