Washington - The US and Israel are trying to move past US President Donald Trump's apparent sharing of Israeli intelligence with Russia.

But American and Israeli spy professionals say they're frustrated and fearful about the repercussions to the US-Israeli intelligence partnership.

During a recent meeting with two Russian officials, Trump shared information about an ISIS threat involving laptops on airplanes. That's according to a senior US official not authorised to discuss sensitive intelligence matters and speaking on condition of anonymity.

The US-Israeli partnership is critical because Israel has spies in parts of the Mideast where the US doesn't. Israeli also has robust cyber capabilities in the region.

Former intelligence officials worry Israel will be more reluctant to share highly classified information with the Trump administration, especially if it could endanger spies.
