Bolton hails Israeli operation, calls on Iran, Hezbollah to stop ‘provocations’

US National Security Adviser John Bolton is the first foreign official to comment on the Israeli operation against Hezbollah attack tunnels on the Lebanon border, expressing support for Jerusalem’s “efforts to defend its sovereignty.”

In a tweet, Bolton calls on the Lebanese terror group to stop digging tunnels into Israel and refrain from responding to the operation.

He also calls on Iran and “all of its agents” to cease “provocations” that threaten the Jewish state’s security.
