US President Barack Obama boarded Air Force One on Tuesday night and departed for Israel.

Obama and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu are expected to publicly paper over any differences on Iran during the American leader’s visit that begins Wednesday, with Netanyahu to express appreciation for the president’s repeated comment that Israel has the right to defend itself by itself against any threat.

In addition to thanking Obama for his rhetorical support on this issue, Netanyahu – according to government officials – will also express Israeli gratitude to the US for its material support in this matter as well.

Obama is scheduled to arrive Wednesday just after noon, making the Jewish state the first overseas destination of his second term and giving him the opportunity to speak directly to the Israeli people. staff contributed to this report
