Kirby: US adjusts presence in the region amid threat on Israel

The US has made adjustments to the balance of power in the Middle East region amid the threat of an Iranian strike on Israel, White House spokesman John Kirby said.


“We have made changes to the balance of forces. Of course, I cannot deny the fact that we have analysed the situation and made certain adjustments,” RIA Novosti quoted him as saying.

Earlier, Ynet reported that the IDF and MOSSAD approved a common response plan in case of an Iranian attack.

Israeli Defence Minister Yoav Galant said that the IDF would respond very quickly with “decisive attacking actions” to anyone who dares to attack the country.
