Pompeo boosts Israel's Netanyahu before election

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have hailed strong ties between the two countries and vowed to counter Iranian "aggression" as the pair met in Jerusalem, weeks before Israel's election.

Pompeo's visit on Wednesday and warm words on Netanyahu's leadership was widely seen as a boost for the Likud chief at the height of a tight re-election campaign.

The Israeli prime minister, who is facing a tough election challenge from a popular former military chief and reeling from a series of corruption allegations, has repeatedly sought to focus attention on his foreign policy record and ties with US President Donald Trump.
