Unbreakable bond: Israel and US defense chiefs discuss military collaboration and address Gaza crisis”.

Israel’s relationship with the United States may have reached a turning point, but not a breaking point. The two countries’ bond is described as “unbreakable,” and Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin and his Israeli counterpart Yoav Gallant met to discuss military collaboration and strengthen Israel’s air capacity. Despite friction between the two allies due to pressure from the White House, Washington has emphasized that it will always stand by Israel, its closest friend in the Middle East.

The urgent need to address the humanitarian crisis in Gaza, exacerbated by a ground blockade of aid convoys, was a pressing issue in their discussions. While Gallant focused on threats to Israel, including the destruction of Hamas and securing the release of hostages, both ministers were cautious in their statements.

The meeting between the defense ministers came after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu criticized the US for abstaining from a UN Security Council vote and canceled a visit to Washington by top advisors. The United States has warned against a ground offensive in Gaza, urging for a ceasefire to prevent further chaos. The discussions also touched on plans to return displaced residents to their homes in border towns.

In a measured tone, both ministers avoided discussing potential conditions on military aid to Israel. Gallant highlighted cooperation to enhance Israel’s military capabilities, including strengthening its aviation. The meeting followed Gallant’s discussions with Secretary of State Antony Blinken and national security adviser Jake Sullivan, as well as Austin’s reassurance of the unbreakable bond between the US and Israel efforts to free the hostages in Gaza.

The then-canceled trip of Netanyahu’s advisers would have included similar discussions, as the two countries navigate the challenges of their relationship.

In conclusion, despite some tensions between Israel and United States, their bond remains strong and unbreakable
