Joni Ernst calls for Amer­i­can lead­er­ship amid ‘unprece­dent­ed’ attack from Iran

Sen. Joni Ernst (R‑IO) sug­gest­ed Israel will need the Unit­ed States’s lead­er­ship amid the attack from Iran.
Ernst appeared on Fox News Sat­ur­day, hours after Iran launched a drone attack against Israel. Since the launch, the U.S., the Unit­ed King­dom, Saudia Ara­bia, and Jor­dan assist­ed in shoot­ing down the drones.
“It is unprece­dent­ed what Iran has done, and we have got to assist the Israelis any way pos­si­ble to push back against this threat,” Ernst said. “So we see the suc­cess­es when Amer­i­ca choos­es to lead and this is what we need at this moment is Amer­i­can lead­er­ship that will step for­ward and sup­port Israel.”

Iran’s attack on Israel is unprecedented.Through my efforts, our allies and part­ners in the Mid­dle East are step­ping up to counter Iran and sup­port Israel through inte­grat­ed air defense coop­er­a­tion.

Israel has many allies due to the Abra­ham Accords, for which the sen­a­tor expressed her grat­i­tude.
