Dan Shapiro, the U.S. ambassador to Israel, said the United States will continue security cooperation with Israel “to even greater levels.”

Shapiro made the pledge Tuesday as he toured a battery of Israel’s Iron Dome short-range missile defense system near the Gaza Strip.

“We are very proud to be involved in this project,” Shapiro said in Hebrew in a video of his visit posted on the U.S. Embassy website. “We will continue our security cooperation to even greater levels.”

Shapiro said President Obama was committed to security cooperation, and noted Obama’s budgeting of $205 million to expand and improve the system.

Israel last week deployed the battery near the Gaza border in the wake of intensified rocket attacks from Gaza on the nation’s South.
