US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley flew by helicopter from Jerusalem to the border with the Gaza Strip and received a briefing from Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon and IDF Deputy Chief of Staff Aviv Kochavi. During the flight, Ambassador Danon described the security challenges emanating from Gaza and detailed the situation on the ground in the Hamas-controlled territory.

“Hamas pours its resources into arms and digging murderous terror tunnels instead of investing in a better future for the residents of Gaza. They educate their youth to hate Israel instead of providing them with the opportunity to grow and flourish,” Ambassador Danon said.

Ambassador Danon noted that Ambassador Haley had recently met the family of Hadar Goldin and said that “Hamas is displaying appalling cruelty by holding the bodies of Hadar Goldin and Oron Shaul hostage in Gaza. We greatly appreciate America’s assistance with our efforts to ensure that they are returned home for a proper burial.”

During her visit, Ambassador Haley is set to tour the Kerem Shalom border crossing, inspect a terror tunnel opening and meet with residents of Kibbutz Nahal Oz. The American Ambassador will then fly north for security briefings along the borders with Lebanon and Syria.
