In an unusual statement, Yoav Gallant’s office says the defense minister has held a number of security assessments over the past day due to unspecified “security incidents.”
His office says the meetings were held with top army and defense officials, including IDF Chief of Staff Herzi Halevi and head of the Shin Bet, Ronen Bar.
The officials presented Gallant with “preliminary findings from the investigation of the incidents,” Gallant’s office says.
“The defense minister instructed to continue efforts to ensure the daily routine of Israeli citizens,” his office adds.
The recent incidents are not detailed in the statement due to security concerns and ongoing investigations.
