Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on “all peace-loving countries to stand by the United States in its effort to stop Iranian aggression” following Thursday’s downing of an American military drone in the Gulf region.

“In the last 24 hours, Iran has intensified its aggression against the United States and against all of us,” Netanyahu said. “Israel stands by the United States on this.”

Earlier on Thursday, US President Donald Trump tweeted that Iran had “made a very big mistake” by targeting the US Navy RQ-4A Global Hawk drone.
