WASHINGTON, United States: US President Joe Biden Friday said he was expecting Iran to attempt to strike Israel in the coming hours in retaliation for a strike in Syria but warned Iran will not succeed.

Biden told reporters after an event here: “I don’t want to get into secure information but my expectation is sooner than later.”

“We are devoted to the defence of Israel, we will support Israel, we will help defend Israel and Iran will not succeed,” president Biden said further.

When asked what his message was for the clerical state on striking Israel, Biden said, “Don’t.”

Iran has vowed retaliation after an Israeli strike on April 1 leveled an Iranian diplomatic building in Damascus, killing seven members of the elite Revolutionary Guards including two generals.
