Reportedly Imminent Iran Attack on Israel Is Viable Threat, White House Says

 – A reportedly imminent attack by Iran on Israel is a real and viable threat, the White House said on Friday, giving no details about any possible timing and reiterating that the U.S. takes its commitments to defend Israel seriously.

White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby added that the United States is looking at its own force posture in the region in light or Tehran’s threat and is watching the situation very closely.
