Knesset Speaker Amir Ohana meets in Washington with US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan kicking off his visit to the US capital.

According to the Knesset spokesperson, Ohana tells Sullivan that Hamas must be completely destroyed and that Israel “appreciates the support of the US from the beginning of the war, particularly the efforts that are being made to bring back the hostages, including US citizens.”

Ohana says that “these are critical days which will determine the fate of the entire region,” pointing to escalations by the Houthis and other Iran-backed militias, including against US forces and international shipping routes.

The Knesset speaker also met with Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, along with a number of family members of hostages as well as several other MKs.

Ohana is slated to meet US House Speaker Mike Johnson at the Capitol tomorrow.
