US Navy docks in Israel for first time in 20 years

US Navy destroyer the USS Ross has docked in Ashdod, a southern port in Israel, Reuters reported. The last time a US ship sailed in the Israeli port was roughly 20 years ago. They would previously dock mostly in the northern ports, something which makes the USS Ross’ docking even more unusual.

The destroyer was met by the country’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, who welcomed the sailors personally and held a speech on the ship’s deck. He noted that the USS Ross’ visit marks a new level of relations between Israel and the US.
