JNS.org – Israel on Tuesday night took another important step toward becoming a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Alliance. The organization announced that it will allow Israel to open an office at NATO headquarters in Brussels to push forward a process that could ultimately lead to full-fledged membership for Israel.

NATO’s 28 members include the United States, Canada, European Union member states and other European countries.

The alliance obligates all member states to aid a fellow member if it comes under attack.

“I welcome NATO’s announcement, it is an important step that helps Israel’s security,” said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. “It is further testament to Israel’s standing and the desire of many to cooperate with us in the field of security.”
