US Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew told The Jerusalem Post Annual Conference in New York on Sunday that "no administration has done more for Israel’s security than this one."

"Under President [Barack] Obama, and with the support of Congress, America has provided $20 billion in military support to Israel," Lew said.

"This assistance has not only enabled Iron Dome, which has saved countless lives, it will lead to the delivery of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter to Israel next year."

|With this stealth fighter, Israel will be the one and only country in the Middle East to have the next generation of technologically advanced fighter jets."
