Defense Minister Yoav Gallant says that along the border with Lebanon the IDF is working to actively strike Hezbollah targets and return security in the north of the country.

Following an assessment with IDF officials in the north, Gallant says in a statement that the military is “carrying out a police of active defense, exacting a price against every threat, in the air and on the ground.”

He says the IDF is responding to missiles and rockets fired by Hezbollah and also striking the terror group’s infrastructure.

Gallant says the military is ready to respond to any attempt by Hezbollah to expand the war in the north, “our intelligence has eyes on things and we are ready to meet any challenge.”

“Our goal is to make residents of the north feel safe — this process will take a little more time but we will get there.”
