Defense Minister Benny Gantz says he met earlier today with the chargé d’affairs at the US Embassy in Jerusalem Michael Ratney to discuss “a host of issues on our agenda, including shifting the basic [security situation] in Gaza so as to foster long-term stability and recover our captives & MIAs.”

“I further told the chargé d’affairs that Israel will continue to work with the US to prevent a nuclear Iran and emphasized that ours is a dialogue between strategic allies and friends, who share a concern for the stability and best interest of the region and the world,” Gantz tweets.
