Today (Friday), Minister of Defense, Benny Gantz spoke to US Secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin in a call that was scheduled prior to this morning’s rocket attack on northern Israel. The discussion focused on Iranian aggression in the region, in particular the recent attack on Mercer Street, which resulted in the deaths of two civilians. Minister Gantz thanked Secretary Austin for the United States’ leadership in the actions taken this far, including the rapid investigation and public condemnation of Iranian aggression. Minister Gantz said that additional action must be taken in order to thwart Iranian malign activities, including its nuclear program and attacks in the region and in particular its use of UAVs and missiles. Minister Gantz also emphasized that Raisi’s recent inauguration points to the even more extremist and fundamentalist direction that Iran is taking.
