      Steinitz: Ya'alon's Apology was Necessary


      Strategic Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz says DM Ya'alon did the right thing in apologizing for his remarks on Secretary Kerry, "Our friendship with the US is stronger than this momentary contention."

      Steinitz added that the rockets fired at Ashkelon last night demonstrate how important a strong Israeli presence in the Jordan Valley is for national security.
