Defense Minister Benny Gantz says Israel will bring Biden up to speed on the progress toward building a regional military alliance against Iran during the US president’s visit this week.

“The first security challenge that you all deal with and will deal with is the fight against Iranian aggression, Iran’s nuclear pursuit, and preserving Israel’s operational capabilities to defend itself, alongside establishing various collaborations,” Gantz tells graduates at the National Security College.

“In two days, President Biden will land here, and we will show him the integrated force building we are doing with partners throughout the region against Iran,” he says.

Gantz adds that Israel’s defense establishment will “have the task of developing this cooperation in the coming years, as the main means of curbing Iranian aggression in the region.”
