Sanders: ‘Israel Absolutely Has a Sovereign Right’ to Self-Defense, ‘We Support Them’ in Self-Defense Efforts

On Wednesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “The Story,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders reacted to reports that Iran launched rockets at Israel by stating that the move shows Iran’s regime can’t be trusted and “Israel absolutely has a sovereign right to defend itself, and we support them in whatever efforts they have in order to defend themselves.”

Sanders said, “This just further shows that the Iranian regime cannot be trusted. Israel absolutely has a sovereign right to defend itself, and we support them in whatever efforts they have in order to defend themselves. But again, I think this activity and this action is just further demonstration that the Iranian regime cannot be trusted and another good reminder that the president made the right decision to get out of the Iran deal.”
