The urgency of alleviating the humanitarian crisis in Gaza stressed by US Secretary of Defense to Israeli counterpart

The bond between Israel and the United States remains strong, despite recent tensions. Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin met with his Israeli counterpart, Yoav Gallant, to discuss military collaboration and strengthening the air capacity of the Israeli army. The meeting took place just two days after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu criticized the White House for allowing an immediate ceasefire resolution in Gaza.

Gallant also met with the director of the CIA, William J. Burns, who participated in negotiations between Israel and Hamas in Doha last week. Friction between the two allies due to pressure from the White House has strained their relationship, with Washington urging Israel to reduce its offensive on Gaza to minimize civilian suffering. However, Austin emphasized that Israel has a right to defend itself and that the United States will always support it because their bond is “unbreakable.”

Both Gallant and Austin discussed threats to Israel and ways to address them, including destroying Hamas and securing the release of hostages. The Israeli Defense Minister’s meeting with his American counterpart came after Netanyahu’s criticism of the United States for abstaining from a UN Security Council vote earlier this year. Gallant also met with Secretary of State Antony Blinken and national security adviser Jake Sullivan to focus on important cooperation between the two countries. Despite challenges they face, both sides remain committed to working together to address their concerns.
