Israeli-Made Armor Helps Save American Lives

— by Max Samis

The state of Israel has proven time and time again to be the United States’ closest and strongest ally, and it continues to be a two-way relationship. During a recent trip to Kibbutz Sasa in the northern Galilee, U.S. Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro had the opportunity to visit the Plasan factory, which has provided over 8,000 armor kits to U.S. troops across the world. In this video posted by the U.S. Embassy, Shapiro demonstrates the capabilities of the products built by Plasan.

Besides the support shown to Israel by the U.S., it is clear that Israeli technology is responsible for saving the lives of American troops in combat.
