The U.S. helped its ally Israel repel a significant missile and drone assault by Iran, assisting with intercepting hundreds of Iranian drones and missiles.

The attack from Iran and its allies on Israel appeared to cause little damage, and Israeli forces said most of the projectiles had been successfully thwarted.

President Biden and Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke following “Iran’s brazen attack” that targeted Israel on Saturday. The president said he reaffirmed U.S. support for Israel and condemned Iran’s missile and drone attacks during the call.

Several lawmakers and officials reacted to the Iranian attack, and there have been bipartisan calls for aid to Israel.

Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) said that Israel is facing a “vicious” attack and the U.S. “must stand with its ally. Both Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY.), in separate statements, pushed for the House to take up the Senate-passed foreign aid package.
