IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Herzi Halevi approved battle plans with the commanders of divisions and brigades at the Southern Command headquarters in Beersheba earlier today.

The IDF says the meeting and “approval of plans for the continuation of the war,” was attended by the chief of the Southern Command, Maj. Gen. Yaron Finkelman, and the heads of all of the command’s divisions and brigades.

The approval of the plans comes ahead of Israel’s looming offensive in southern Gaza’s Rafah.
