WATCH: PM Netanyahu: Israel Will Maintain Its Qualitative Advantage In The Mideast


Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu following this week’s visit by US President Donald Trump announced that Israel will maintain its qualitative military advantage in the region as has been the case over the years.

Speaking from Mt. Herzl on Yom Yerushalayim, the prime minister stated, “…We have just finished the visit of US President Donald Trump, the president of our greatest ally. The US has promised to maintain Israel’s qualitative advantage in the Middle East. Three days ago, the US added another $75 million to the aid package for the missile defense program. While we very much appreciate the assistance and support, I would like to reiterate: History has proven that Israel’s security depends on our readiness and our ability to defend ourselves by ourselves against any threat.”
