Gantz thanks Pelosi for bill boosting Iron Dome funding

Defense Minister Benny Gantz speaks with Nancy Pelosi to thank her “for her role in promoting and passing the Iron Dome interceptors funding bill in the House of Representatives last week,” he says on Twitter.

The US House of Representatives last week approved $1 billion in funds for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system in a 420-9 vote.

“I also thanked Speaker Pelosi for her ongoing commitment to Israel’s security over the years. I stressed that bipartisan support, particularly for our air defense mechanisms, is vital. These systems enable us to defend our citizens while never ceasing the pursuit for peace,” Gantz adds.
