Washington's ambassador to Israel denies that the relationship between the two sides has changed

The US Ambassador to Israel, Jack Lew, stressed that "nothing has fundamentally changed in the basic relationship" between Israel and the United States, despite Washington's suspension of sending a shipment of weapons to Tel Aviv.

Noting that military aid from Washington to Jerusalem has increased since the outbreak of war in Gaza after the Hamas attack on October 7, Liu emphasized in an interview with Channel 12 that “only one batch of munitions has been frozen, and everything else continues to flow.”

He stressed that the two sides “need to continue talking about issues related to the use of large diameter bombs and heavy bombs, especially when there is a possibility of their use in densely populated urban areas,” adding: “But I think it is a mistake to believe that anything has fundamentally changed in Relationship".

In response to a question about US President Joe Biden's stated intention not to provide Israel with offensive weapons "if they get into these population centers," Liu replied: "What the president said is that he does not think a large-scale ground campaign is a good idea in a densely populated area. But he said Specifically, 2,000-pound (900-kilogram) bombs should not be used in this location.”

Liu pointed out that Biden made it clear that Israel, so far, has not participated in this type of major ground operations in Rafah, which the United States opposes, adding: “The Rafah operation did not cross into the area where our differences lie. I hope that we will not end up with real differences.” ".
