WASHINGTON, DC – House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today after reports that Iran launched a drone intended for an Israeli target:

“Israel will always have the right to defend itself against attack. If reports are correct that Iran launched a drone intended to strike a target in Israel, that would constitute an attack against our ally and cannot be ignored by the United States and international community. Iran continues to flout international laws and norms, threaten the entire region, and sow terror around the world. It must be U.S. policy that no solution to the crisis in Syria should allow Iran to retain a permanent presence from where it can threaten Israel.”
