Gantz speaks to US defense chief Austin on efforts to prevent Iran bomb
Defense Minister Benny Gantz speaks with his US counterpart Lloyd Austin about joint efforts to stop Iran from acquiring a nuclear bomb.
Gantz says the two discussed a “series of defense topics, including the measures required to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon.”
“In our discussion of operation ‘Breaking Dawn,’ I thanked him once again for US support for the replenishment of the life-saving Iron Dome,” Gantz says referring to last week’s fighting in Gaza with the Islamic Jihad.
“We also spoke about developments in Ukraine, and about Israel’s recent efforts to deliver humanitarian aid and protective gear,” Gantz says.
