IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Herzi Halevi met with troops in central Gaza on Friday afternoon, the military announces.

Halevi held an assessment with the chief of the Southern Command, Maj. Gen. Yaron Finkelman, the commander of the 99th Division, Brig. Gen. Barak Hiram, and reservist officers operating in the Netzarim Corridor.

“The IDF operates in many arenas, north, south, Judea and Samaria [West Bank]… we have many more tasks ahead. Patience is needed,” he tells the reservists.
