Mordechai says that the reservists that were called up are streaming to the area and preparing for their planned missions.

Mordechai also talks about the air force’s activities overnight and the complexity of targeting terrorists who use mosques and hospitals as their bases of operation.

“It is a huge challenge and sometimes causes us to cancel strikes, but the air force knows how to carry out surgical strikes and will continue doing so successfully,” says Mordechai.
