US officials vow support for Israel at AIPAC conference

US officials including Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo with more than a dozen US lawmakers appeared on stage on the second day of AIPAC's annual conference to vow support for Israel as it responded to an alleged rocket attack by Hamas with air strikes on Gaza.

Pence listed the policy moves President Donald Trump had taken to support Israel, drawing applause from about 18,000 attendees at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee gathering.

"Under President Donald Trump, if the world knows nothing else the world knows this: America stands with Israel," Pence said.
