CNN’s Chris Cuomo suggested on Friday that the United States is to blame for Iran’s latest round of missile strikes on Israel.
Cuomo asked State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert during a Friday morning interview if she thought pulling out of the Iran Deal could have provoked Iran.
“The Iran and Israeli situation… is there any concern that pulling the United States or threatening to pull it out of the Iran deal precipitated or helped provoke the actions that Israel is pointing out now in terms of missiles that were launched from Syria into the Golan heights?” Cuomo asked.
Nauert responded that it is “unbelievable” that people would try to blame the United States for Iran’s actions.
“You know, it’s unbelievable that some would try to blame the United States for Iran’s actions,” Nauert said. “It’s unbelievable that others would try to blame Israel for this. Iran is responsible for many bad acts around the world.”
“We’ve seen that as Iran has provided weapons, money and all of that to Hezbollah operating in Syria,” she continued. “So let’s take a look at where these bad actions are coming from. They’re from Iran and not other countries.”
