US concerned Iran militarily could attack Israel

Donald Trump greets Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
US military officials are worried Iran would launch an attack against Israel, following the decision of President Donald Trump to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal, according to CNN

However, US intelligence is not clear on when an attack could come and what form it would take, with one official noting that "if there is an attack it might not be immediately clear it's Iran."

The US is watching very closely to see if Iranian-backed actions could come from inside Syria or Lebanon, or even from inside Iran itself, though that would be considered a major military escalation, the military officials told CNN.

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) called up a limited number of reserves Tuesday evening following what the IDF termed the "identification of irregular activity of Iranian forces in Syria."
A spokeswoman for the IDF said it was a "specific call-up based on need."
