Germany’s defense minister has offered his Israeli counterpart, Yoav Gallant, support from Germany following the major attack by Hamas.

The German government made that offer also to the Israeli military attaché in Berlin, Boris Pistorius tells reporters.

“Both have said so far that they do not need support of a military or technical nature. It is about political support,” the German defense minister said, adding that Germany’s political support for Israel was self-evident.

Pistorius also says that “as soon as we can help in a humanitarian way, the offer is there, too, but so far it has not been asked for.”
