In a sign of bolstering military ties between Israel and the United States, Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs Gen. Martin Dempsey will arrive in Israel next month for talks aimed at reassuring Israel that the US is serious about stopping Iran's nuclear program.

Dempsey will arrive in Israel in mid January in a trip that comes as the US escalates its rhetoric regarding US military preparations to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities.
