Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema visited Israel only a few months ago, gathering insights and expertise on tunnel technology from the Israel Defense Forces. Some of that expertise has been put to use in Yuma recently to counter tunnels built by drug cartels, the senator told Jewish News in a one-on-one interview Thursday, Oct. 19.

Sinema described her July trip as “a wonderful visit,” where she was able to celebrate the Fourth of July at the American embassy in Jerusalem with many American friends living in Israel.

“I am really lucky to consider a number of individuals who live in Israel personal friends,” she said.
