Gen. Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the United States Joint Chiefs of Staff visited Yad Vashem Friday, together with IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz.
The US general reflected upon his visit to the Holocaust museum in a signed letter: "I have studied the Holocaust and visited concentration camps in Europe. Nothing is so profound and moving as this site... We are committed to ensuring that such a human tragedy never happens again. God bless the victims and protect Israel."
The US army chief began his round of meetings with Israel’s top military and political leadership on Friday with a clear message – coordination and dialogue is the key to improving Israel’s security standing in the region.
