Israeli Ambassador to the US Ron Dermer traveled secretly to Alaska last week on a trip Israeli officials have said was not the usual run-of-the-mill diplomatic visit, but rather a “much more important and even dramatic” trip.
Hebrew-language reporter Barak Ravid first reported on Channel 13 Friday night about the visit, quoting unnamed Israeli officials who said the trip concerned an issue “at the core of the US-Israel security relationship,” and deals with the Iranian threat facing the two nations.
Last week Iran tested a medium-range Shahab-3 ballistic missile that is capable of carrying a nuclear warhead, according to senior U.S. sources quoted by Fox News. The missile, launched in the early hours of July 25 (Wednesday) from southern Iran, flew a distance of some 960 kilometers (600 miles) to northern Iran before landing in a desert east of Tehran.
Israel’s military censor has censored other details at this time.
