Eleven UN ambassadors were briefed on Israel’s security challenges on Tuesday, as they are visiting the country with Israel’s representative at the United Nations Danny Danon.
The delegation received the briefings as they were flying in helicopters over the country’s narrow “waistline” and visited communities near the Gaza Strip such as Sderot and Kibbutz Nahal Oz, where they heard about living under the threat of rocket fire and tunnel attacks. The group then flew north to Ziv Medical Center in Safed, where they witnessed medical aid care given to Syrian refugees.
The ambassadors were also taken to the Lebanese border where they were briefed on the threats Israel faces there.
