Defense Minister Yoav Gallant will visit the United States later this month, his office confirms to The Times of Israel.

It will be the second time the minister has visited the US since the outbreak of the Israel-Hamas war on October 7.

A Pentagon spokesperson says Gallant’s visit aims “to further discuss ongoing security developments in the Middle East.”
