Israel reportedly provided the information to the U.S. that President Trump revealed to Russian officials last week in a conversation that has since attracted widespread scrutiny due to the sensitivity of the disclosure.

Israeli officials had previously warned their American counterparts to handle the intelligence in question with caution, the New York Times reported Tuesday. That intelligence was related to a specific Islamic State plot.

The White House has rejected reports that Trump improperly shared intelligence with the Russian foreign minister and Russian ambassador, and said Trump never discussed the source of the intelligence and raised it only in the context of a conversation about fighting terrorism.

The Israeli ambassador to the U.S. said Israel would continue its intelligence-sharing relationship with the U.S. despite the episode.

"Israel has full confidence in our intelligence-sharing relationship with the United States and looks forward to deepening that relationship in the years ahead under President Trump," Ambassador Ron Dermer said.

Critics have accused Trump of putting the resources of a U.S. ally at risk by giving the Russian government enough information to identify its source. National security adviser H.R. McMaster told reporters on Tuesday that Trump was not aware the information came to him by way of an ally when he received it in a briefing.
