Gantz holding security assessment with defense chiefs

Defense Minister Benny Gantz is currently holding a security assessment meeting with the heads of Israel’s defense establishment at the Defense Ministry headquarters in Tel Aviv.

The meeting, which includes IDF chief of staff Aviv Kochavi and Shin Bet director Nadav Argaman, comes as the flag parade in Jerusalem, which the Gaza-based Hamas group has threatened to respond to, reaches its conclusion.

According to the Kan public broadcaster, Israel had reassured both the Palestinian Authority and Jordan that it was looking for escalation over the parade.
