Report: Israel, U.S. Form Joint Plan to Contain Iran

Israel and the United States have agreed on a joint plan to “curb Iranian activity” in the Middle East, Israeli TV 10’s Barak Ravid reported Thursday. An Israeli delegation met with a team led by U.S. National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster at the White House two weeks ago to discuss a strategic plan. The plan reportedly calls for joint working groups to formulate options for “clandestine and diplomatic” activity to thwart Tehran's nuclear program, another to deal with its ballistic missile program, and others to manage Iran's presence in Syria and its client Hezbollah in Lebanon.
