Donald Trump made the comments while at the White House
As he held a joint press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, President Trump issued the stark message on behalf of the two nations. According to Newsweek, Trump had just signed an executive order, officially recognising the occupied Golan Heights as part of Israel. The move was in direct opposition to the views of the United Nation and former US administrations.
The land is currently seen as part of Syria.
But upon hearing of further strikes to the Israeli city of Tel Aviv, Trump said the two nations would consider “defence and perhaps offence” on behalf of Israel.
He added: “Under my administration, the unbreakable alliance between the United States and Israel has never been stronger.”
The row continued after Israel claimed Iran had been supporting terror groups in Syria.

The latest attacks ramp up the pressure on all nations involved.
Reports suggest that Hamas has denied any role in the aerial assaults, claiming “no one from the resistance movements, including Hamas, has an interest in firing rockets from the Gaza Strip towards the enemy”.
Earlier on Monday, Mr Netanyahu said he would be shortening his Washington visit in the wake of the attack.
He vowed to respond “forcefully”.
Mr Netanyahu shortened his trip following the attacks in Tel Aviv
Seven people have been injured following a Gaza rocket hitting a house in central Israel, close to Tel Aviv.
Israeli General Benny Gantz has called on Mr Netanyahu to return to Israel to deal with the security situation, where there has been no immediate claim of responsibility.
The attack on the farming town of Mishmeret came at a time of tension shortly before the anniversary of Gaza border protests at the weekend.
Mr Netanyahu added: “This was a criminal attack on Israel and we will respond forcefully.”
