Washington: Commending Israel on the ceasefire with Hamas, the US today reaffirmed its commitment to the country’s security and a strong defence relationship with it.

"Secretary Panetta spoke with Israeli Minister of Defence Ehud Barak today and reiterated the strong US commitment to Israel’s security and the strong US-Israel defence relationship," Pentagon Press Secretary George Little, said.

Commending Israel on the ceasefire reached today, Panetta expressed his hope that no further rockets will be fired from Gaza, and committed to continue working together with the country to address the issue of the smuggling of weapons into Gaza.

"Barak thanked Panetta and the Obama Administration for US support of the Iron Dome counter-rocket system. The system intercepted over 85 per cent of rockets fired at Israeli civilians and provided decision space for Israel to achieve its strategic goals without forcing further military actions," Little said.

"Panetta stated how impressed he is by the Iron Dome system and looks forward to continuing to support the system for the benefit of Israel’s security," he said.
