The classified information President Donald Trump released to Russian officials was provided by Israel, the New York Times and NBC News report.

NBC News confirmed the Times report citing three government officials with knowledge.

NBC reported Israel was the source of ISIS-related intelligence that President Donald Trump shared with Russia last week, according to three government officials with knowledge of the matter.

Israeli Ambassador Ron Dermer did not confirm the source of the intelligence but said in a statement that his country "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."

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer declined to comment, instead offering appreciation for the U.S.-Israeli relationship.
