‘Gaza conclusions must be implemented in north’

During a visit to communities on the border with the Gaza Strip, in southern Israel, MK Moti Yogev (Jewish Home) says Israel should implement the conclusions drawn during Operation Protective Edge in combating threats in the north.

Yogev, a former commander of the IDF’s Gaza Division who is now a member of the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee (FADC), tours the south to assess the security needs of the border communities, particularly in light of the threat of terror tunnels.

He then makes his way north to Safed, to visit the family of fallen IDF soldier Eliav Kahlon.

“The ascent from north to south made me realize that we have to quickly draw conclusions from Operation Protective Edge in order to implement them in the north as well, in light of the threats being leveled at us from there,” Yogev says.
