Prime Minister Naftali Bennett thanks US House members after they overwhelmingly approve $1 billion in funding for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system.
“Thanks to members of the House of Representatives, Democratic and Republican alike, for the overwhelming support for Israel and the commitment to its security,” he tweets. “Whoever tries to challenge this security received a convincing answer today.”
Foreign Minister Yair Lapid also releases a statement thanking the US House members who backed the bill.
I am grateful for the overwhelming bipartisan support for Israel and the solid commitment to our security demonstrated today by the vote on the replenishment of the Iron Dome missile defense system.
