Defense Minister Yoav Gallant tours the Gaza Strip border area meeting with military commanders and local council leaders in the wake of the recent military operation in the Gaza Strip against the Islamic Jihad.

“The missions in ‘Shield and Arrow’ were carried out with great success, but the main goal we are preparing for is much more complex, difficult and significant. We need to be ready at any moment,” Gallant says at the Gaza Division headquarters.

Later, meeting municipal heads, Gallant praises them for their behaviors during the operation when hundreds of rockets were fired at their communities.

Gallant also visits the Hatzor Air Force Base meeting with drone operators and the David’s Sling missile defense team after the system was successfully used for the first time during the conflict.
