Bolton arrived in Israel after US President Donald Trump confirmed he had "stopped" an airstrike against the Islamic Republic on Thursday night just ten minutes before it was slated to occur, APA reports citing Sputnik.

"Neither Iran nor any other hostile actor should mistake US prudence and discretion for weakness", US National Security Adviser John Bolton ahead of a meeting with Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem, adding that the American military "is rebuilt new and ready to go".

The new crisis in relations between Iran and the US ignited after Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps had shot down a surveillance drone over the Strait of Hormuz. According to them, the UAV has crossed the Iranian border, while the US military insists the aircraft was operating in international airspace.
