Defense minister to hold assessment with top security officials
Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.
Defense Minister Gallant is to hold an assessment with military chief Herzi Halevi, Shin Bet head Ronen Bar, and other defense officials in the coming hour, his office says.
Gallant had been in the US for a personal trip, which was cut short following last night’s deadly terror attack in Jerusalem.
Later, Israel’s security cabinet is set to convene to discuss measures following the attack that left seven dead and a second shooting in the capital this morning.
