Defense Minister Yoav Gallant meets former US envoy to the UN Nikki Haley — a possible Donald Trump vice president pick — in Tel Aviv to discuss Israel-US ties in the face of Iranian threats, according to a post on X by Gallant.

“Hamas and Hezbollah not only attack Israel, they attack our shared values and way of life,” says Gallant.

Haley also meets with war cabinet minister Benny Gantz, whose office says the two discussed the fighting in Rafah and Israel’s right to fight wherever necessary to remove the Hamas threat.
