Speaking at an Israel Air Force pilots course graduation ceremony, President Isaac Herzog says Israel is working “24/7” to protect its citizens, following reports of Iranian attempts to harm Israeli tourists in Turkey.

“The security of Israeli citizens is being tested every day. Many challenges lie ahead, visible to the public, and hidden from them. Iran is sending its long arms of terror, into Israel, to our borders, and to other countries as well,” Herzog says.

“We were informed today of attempts to kidnap Israelis and harm them, and believe me that the security arms of the State of Israel operate 24/7, in counterterrorism operations that are often reminiscent of thrillers movies,” he says. “Reality sometimes surpasses all imagination.”
