Gantz: US still committed to ensuring Israel’s security, qualitative edge

Defense Minister Benny Gantz releases a statement appearing to address this evening’s news that the White House has informed Congress it will sell F-35 stealth fighters to the United Arab Emirates.

“The US continues to be committed to Israel’s security and its qualitative and technological advantage in the Middle East,” Gantz writes on his Twitter account.

He adds: “In my meetings with senior officials in the American administration and Defense Secretary Esper, we took care to ensure Israel’s security for dozens of years ahead and to continue strengthening it.”
