In early May, the U.S. special envoy to Syria, James Jeffrey, summed up American policy in Syria in an interview to the Saudi-owned newspaper Asharq al-Awsat.


“The U.S. supports Israel’s efforts to secure its self-defense. Israel is facing an existential threat from Iran, as they [the Iranians] have said a thousand times that their mission is to destroy Israel … and Israel has the right to take whatever action it needs, being careful about Syrian casualties which the Israelis are, for the goal of saving Israel. Therefore, we are supportive of them in any way we can,” Jeffrey said, according to a transcript on the newspaper’s English-language website.
