How the US shifted from rapping Israel over Gaza to defending it against Iran

While a majority of those launches were intercepted by the IDF, it was the US that tipped off Israel to the attack once it began. US forces were also responsible for shooting down 80 of the UAVs and at least six of the ballistic missiles, according to US CENTCOM. Dozens of other launches were also intercepted by the UK, France and Jordan, working under a regional defense umbrella recently established by Washington.

Ninety-nine percent of the launches were ultimately thwarted, and only one Israeli was injured as a result of shrapnel from an intercepted missile, while an IDF airbase incurred just minor damage.

  1. Public US support of Israel is limited to when Israel is under direct attack and in immediate danger. When Israel goes on the offensive to ensure it won't be attacked again, that support quickly evapourates.
