He told a meeting: “We have a common mission – to guard the security of Israel in all arenas.

In the first arena, Gaza, we are ready to act and do everything that needs to be done to maintain the security of the residents of the area adjacent to the Gaza Strip and the south.

The second arena is Judea and Samaria. This year, the IDF and the ISA have foiled around 500 terrorist attacks. This is the opportunity to commend the recent joint action that prevented a very large attack which was directed by Hamas in Gaza.

The third arena is the north, Syria and Lebanon. We are continuing to take action to thwart the establishment of an Iranian military presence in Syria, and Hezbollah’s precision weapons project in Lebanon.

Present here are the Chief-of-Staff and the IDF generals who work tirelessly for the security of Israel – this is our mission and we will continue it.”
