“Gallant has been briefed on the details of the recent security events on Israel’s northern border, and has given initial directives to the IDF Chief of the General Staff and the wider defense establishment,” his office says.

“The minister will soon conduct a situation assessment with senior officials in the defense establishment,” Gallant’s office adds.
