Kirby Is Asked If Israel Got Help from U.S. with a No-Fly Zone, How About Ukraine?

April 17, 2024 (EIRNS)—Among the commentary about the Iranian retaliation against Israel, some authors have taken note of the fact that the U.S., the U.K. and France all helped shoot down drones and missiles targeting Israel, which helped establish something of a no-fly zone over Israel. White House spokesman John Kirby was asked about this during the Tuesday April 16 daily briefing, inquiring whether the same tactics could be used in the Ukraine conflict.
