Roman Gofman, the Prime Minister's Foreign Policy Adviser, Dr. Ophir Falk, and Deputy Chief of Mission at the US Embassy in Israel Stephanie Hallett.

Earlier today, Defense Minister Yoav Gallant met with a bipartisan delegation of US members of Congress, in coordination with the American Israel Education Foundation.

“Israel is engaged in a war against Iranian proxies – a war on Western civilization. US support in all its forms is critical not only to Israel’s victory but also to the deterrence of our common enemies across the world,” Gallant told the delegation.
