Pentagon chief arrives in Israel amid anti-Netanyahu protests

U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin arrived in Israel on Thursday, a Reuters correspondent traveling with him said, as part of a visit that had been rescheduled due to a surge in protests against the government's judicial overhaul plans.
Austin landed in Ben Gurion Airport and was due to meet at a nearby venue with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defence Minister Yoav Gallant. (Reuters)
