U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, expressing condolences to Russia, did not mention Israel but emphasized the urgency of reining in Iran.

“Yesterday’s unfortunate incident reminds us of the need to find permanent, peaceful, and political resolutions to the many overlapping conflicts in the region and the danger of tragic miscalculation in Syria’s crowded theater of operations,” Pompeo said in a statement. “It underlines the urgent need to resolve the Syrian conflict … and to end Iran’s provocative transit of dangerous weapon systems through Syria, which are a threat to the region.”
