Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon commented on Yedioth Ahronoth's publication on Tuesday, saying: "Relations between the United States and Israel are intimate and very meaningful for us. The United States is our strongest friend and most important ally.
Ya'alon further said: "When there are disagreements, we settle them in private rooms, including with Secretary of State Kerry." Yedioth Ahronoth published Monday that Ya'alon called Kerry's efforts "misplaced obsession and messianic fervor". (Yoav Zitun)
