Israel Spy Chief Going to US

Israel's top intelligence officer will visit the United States this week, sources with knowledge of the itinerary said; a sign that security cooperation continues despite disputes between the countries' leaders over strategy over Iran.
Major-General Herzi Halevy, commander of Israeli military intelligence, is scheduled to meet US defense officials and attend a pro-Israel fundraising event, the sources said. It is his first US trip since being appointed in September, Reuters reported.
Bilateral ties have been strained by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech in the US Congress last week against President Barack Obama's negotiations with Iran over a possible nuclear deal. However, Obama has emphasized his administration's continuing defense assistance to the Israelis.
