Nikki Haley: ‘Israelis deserve to be safe in their homes’


Former US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley spent Sunday in southern Israel, where she witnessed first hand the destruction caused from the recent Hamas war.

“Israelis have a right to defend themselves,” she said during a visit to one Ashkelon home. “We will make sure we are loud about what the root cause of this [war] is. Israelis deserve to be safe in their homes.”

Haley arrived in the country on Friday, spending Shabbat in Jerusalem, including a visit to the Western Wall.

“No matter the challenges, the people of Israel always celebrate life and thank God for their blessings,” Haley tweeted Saturday with a picture of herself praying at the Kotel. “It’s humbling to join them again in prayer at such a holy place.”
