US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem on Friday to discuss, among other topics, the recent developments in the Middle East, and measures to push back Iran.

"We talked about all the efforts we have made to push back against the threat not only to Israel but to the region and the world from the Islamic Republic of Iran", said Pompeo.

He added that the collaboration is focused on "ensure Middle East stability together" and "jointly combat all the challenges that the world confronts here in the Middle East."

Speaking to journalists, Netanyahu hailed the US support. "The Middle East is a sea of troubles and turbulence, but if there is one thing that stands out, it's your ability, stability and strength of the American-Israel alliance," he said.

Pompeo arrived in Israel after the US negotiated a deal with Turkey for a 120-hour ceasefire in Syria.
