U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel and his Israeli counterpart, Moshe Yaalon, will meet this week.

A Pentagon official told JTA that the two defense chiefs would meet in Washington on Friday, but did not provide further details.

Israel and the United States are closely cooperating in tracking Iran’s suspected nuclear weapons program and formulating strategy over how to prevent it.

Hagel and Yaalon met last month in Israel in their first meeting since taking their posts.
