Former president Shimon Peres on Thursday criticized those in Israel who question the friendship of US President Barack Obama, suggesting that they were ungrateful.
Peres’s comments came a day after the US handed over to Israel its new F-35 fighter jets in a ceremony in Fort Worth, Texas attended by Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman.
"Yesterday was a very important day in the history of Israel," Peres stated. "The United States handed over to us one of the best planes in the world. The F-35, which will add great power to our air force."
