The urgency of alleviating the humanitarian crisis in Gaza stressed by US Secretary of Defense to Israeli counterpart

The relationship between Israel and the United States may have reached a breaking point, but not a total collapse as defined by Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin after meeting with his Israeli counterpart, Yoav Gallant. The meeting took place on the second day of Gallant’s visit to the United States and focused on issues of military collaboration and strengthening the air capacity of the Israeli army.

Gallant met with William J. Burns, director of the CIA, who had participated in negotiations between Israel and Hamas in Doha last week. Friction between the two allies due to pressure from the White House has strained their bilateral relationship, with Washington urging Israel to reduce the intensity of its offensive on Gaza to minimize civilian suffering. However, Austin emphasized that Israel has the right to defend itself and that the United States will always support it because their bond is “unbreakable.”

The urgent relief of the humanitarian crisis in Gaza remains a priority for both countries, with challenges and criticism facing Israel for their actions. Gallant and Austin discussed threats to Israel and ways to address them, including destroying Hamas and securing hostages’ release.

The Israeli Defense Minister’s meeting with his American counterpart came after Netanyahu criticized the United States for abstaining from a UN Security Council vote. Gallant also met with Secretary of State Antony Blinken and national security adviser Jake Sullivan during his visit to Washington. The meeting focused on important cooperation between the two countries to ensure Israel’s military advantage and capabilities are maintained.

Despite tensions between Israel and the US, both sides remain committed to working together to address challenges they face in their respective regions.
