Gallant briefs US on multiple terror assault on civilians

Defense Minister Yoav Gallant briefed US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin on the comprehensive campaign of terror conducted against Israel from its northern and southern borders and inside the country. He reported on Israel’s efforts to “thwart terrorism and respond effectively to any threat to Israeli civilians and troops,” his office said. Gallant also stressed that security measures had been redoubled to ensure freedom of worship in Jerusalem to members of the three world faiths, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, in the face of bands of extremists bent on hijacking the peace on Temple Mount.
