WASHINGTON, Apr 15: President Joe Biden has told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that the United States would not participate in any Israeli counter-offensive against Iran, a White House official said on Sunday.

Iran launched hundreds of drones and missiles at Israel on Saturday in response to a suspected Israel attack on Irans Syria consulate on April 1.

In a statement issued late on Saturday following the attacks, Biden said he told Netanyahu that Israel had "demonstrated a remarkable capacity to defend against and defeat even unprecedented attacks."

Biden did not say in the statement if he and Netanyahu discussed a possible Israeli response or potential US involvement.

John Kirby, the White Houses top national security spokesperson, told ABCs "This Week" program on Sunday that the United States will continue to help Israel defend itself, but does not want war with Iran.    —REUTERS
