DOD: Austin Says U.S. Will Supply Military Necessities to Israel, Ukraine
"Our support for Israel is rock solid. We're working urgently to get Israel what it needs to defend itself, including munitions and Iron Dome interceptors".
Department of Defense: The United States will supply Israel with the capabilities it needs to combat the Hamas terror group even as it supplies Ukraine with the weaponry needed to defeat Russia, Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin III said today at NATO headquarters in Brussels.
"We can and will stand by Israel, even as we stand by Ukraine," Austin said at the conclusion of a meeting of NATO defense ministers. "The United States can walk and chew gum at the same time."
"Israel has the right to defend itself. And as the conflict unfolds, the protection of civilians is essential. No nation or organization hostile to Israel should seek to take advantage of the situation, or to escalate the conflict."
