The White House condemned Iran on Thursday, saying it "strongly supports" Israel’s right to self-defense after a barrage of rockets targeted Israeli military outposts overnight. The White House also said Iran’s Revolutionary Guard "bears full responsibility for the consequences of its reckless actions."

"The Iranian regime’s deployment into Syria of offensive rocket and missile systems aimed at Israel is an unacceptable and highly dangerous development for the entire Middle East," the White House said.

The U.S. also urged "all nations to make clear that the Iranian regime’s actions pose a severe threat to international peace and stability."
