US Mideast envoy Jason Greenblatt backs Israel’s defensive strikes in Syria, Gaza 
World Israel News 

Greenblatt said on his Twitter account that Israel has a right and a responsibility to defend itself against attacks.

US Middle East peace envoy Jason Greenblatt backed Israeli military operations designed to defend itself after Israel launched defensive strikes both on its northern border and against terrorists in Gaza.

“Bad actors in the Middle East are once again instigating malign activities,” Greenblatt tweeted late Wednesday. “We affirm Israel’s right and responsibility to defend itself.”

His comments came after Hamas terrorists opened fire on Israeli soldiers on the border of the Gaza Strip, wounding one soldier, and two rockets, apparently fired by the Islamic State group in Syria, landed in the Sea of Galilee, causing no injuries or damage.

Israel responded to the assaults with attacks on Hamas positions in the Gaza Strip, while the air force bombed the rocket launcher in Syria that fired the missiles in the north. The Russian Defense Ministry later said the Islamic State terror group had operated the launcher.
