Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the United States Joint Chiefs of Staff, arrived in Israel with his wife Thursday evening, and dined with IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz.

Dempsey scheduled his visit in an effort to convince Israel to give diplomacy and sanctions more time to stop Iran’s nuclear program.

The US army chief  will be met on Friday morning by an honor guard at the Kirya Military Headquarters in Tel Aviv.
