Defense Minister Yoav Gallant just got off of another phone call with US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin.

The two have spoken almost daily since the October 7 Hamas onslaught.

Gallant updated Austin on its military operations in response to the terror attacks.

Austin “called for Lebanese Hezbollah to cease its attacks from southern Lebanon into Israel, and underscored the importance of humanitarian aid deliveries to civilians in Gaza,” a US readout says.

Austin also updated Gallant on “upcoming deliveries of security assistance to Israel and reiterated the US commitment to the safe return of hostages held by Hamas,” the US readout says.
