US mil­i­tary response to Iran mis­sile attacks not need­ed ‘at this point’: Mike Turn­er

Posted in Israel

House Intel­li­gence Com­mit­tee Mike Turn­er (R‑OH) does not believe the Unit­ed States needs to engage in an offen­sive mil­i­tary response to Iran‘s mis­sile attack on Israel but dis­agrees with the Biden admin­is­tra­tion that this is not an “esca­lat­ing” con­flict.
“I don’t think at this point that the Unit­ed States should be engaged in a mil­i­tary action direct­ly at Iran,” Turn­er said in a Sun­day inter­view with NBC News’s Meet the Press.
Turner’s com­ments come after Iran launched more than 200 UAVs, cruise mis­siles, and bal­lis­tic mis­siles into the Jew­ish State on Sat­ur­day night and into Sun­day morn­ing. Israeli mil­i­tary forces have said they were able to inter­cept “99% of the threats launched toward Israeli ter­ri­to­ry.”
