Fresh off a trip to Washington and New York, Defense Minister Benny Gantz says Israel is working in lockstep with its allies to counter Iran.

“We are at a critical testing point of global determination and world order — both in Ukraine, in Iran and elsewhere,” Gantz tells a meeting of his Blue and White faction in the Knesset. “Together with the US, and with other partners from the region, we will continue to build our strength in the face of the nuclear threat posed by Iran and in the face of its regional aggression.”
