Israel: US warship docks in Israeli port for first time in 20 years

The USS Ross became the first United States warship to dock in Israel in nearly 20 years on Thursday.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu boarded the guided-missile destroyer, stationed in Ashdod, to mark the occasion.

In a short speech, Netanyahu called the visit “significant” and symbolic of “deep alliance” between Israel and the US.

“President [Donald] Trump has given full support to our policy and that this destroyer is visiting here today is an expression of that American support,” the Israeli leader added.
