Chief of staff praises IDF for preventing terror attacks

Army chief Lt. Gen. Gadi Eisenkot praises the military for standing in the way of terrorists looking to carry out attacks in the West Bank and Israel.

These attacks were prevented “thanks to the determination, fortitude and professionalism of IDF warriors,” Eisenkot says, speaking at a ceremony honoring outstanding officers and non-combatant officers (NCOs).

“And beyond our borders, we are witnesses to attempts to smuggle dangerous weapons into the wrong hands, and we are taking action to preserve the essential interest of the State of Israel,” he adds.

This is an apparent reference to airstrikes carried out against Hezbollah weapons caches and convoys, which are regularly attributed to Israel, though the Jewish state refrains from officially taking credit for them.
