Israel continues to target Iranian terror proxies in the region with airstrikes, while the U.S. chokes off the rogue state’s economic lifelines.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday thanked President Donald Trump for imposing even tighter economic sanctions on Iran in reaction to a devastating attack on Saudi Arabia’s oil industry that appears to have been perpetrated by the Islamic Republic.

“Iran’s aggression has increased of late, including in the Gulf, and this is precisely the time to increase pressure and sanctions. I am pleased Donald Trump has done exactly this,” said Netanyahu.
