The U.S. State Department published a factsheet entitled “Furthering Our Relationship with Israel”, noting, inter alia, that “the U.S. stands with Israel in countering Iran’s destabilising behaviour in the region” and underscoring the fact that “the U.S. supports Israel’s right to defend itself and is a partner to Israel in the face of Iran’s continued support for designated terrorist groups such as Hizbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza”. The document further recognised “Israel’s support for our decision to trigger the snapback of UNSC sanctions on Iran”, noting that “we continue to promote implementation of the snapped-back sanctions”.
