VP Mike Pence’s plane arrives in Israel:
United States Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen arrived Sunday evening to a warm welcome at Ben Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv.
America’s Second Couple were greeted on the tarmac by Israel’s Tourism Minister Yariv Levin and Israel’s Ambassador to the United States, Ron Dermer.
Eastbound Highway 1 was closed to traffic from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, as was Southbound Highway 6, from the Ben Shemen Interchange, due to the arrival of the vice president.
The vice president traveled from the airport straight to Jerusalem, where he begins his day bright and early first thing Monday morning with a meeting at the Prime Minister’s Office.
