IDF chief returns to Israel early to attend Gaza cabinet meeting

IDF chief of staff Gadi Eisenkot arrives back in Israel to attend an urgent security cabinet meeting called in the wake of the surge in tensions in the Gaza Strip.

Eisenkot traveled to the US earlier this week to attend a counter-terrorism conference, but cut short his trip so he could attend this evening’s cabinet meeting where Netanyahu and his ministers will discuss possible Israeli action in Gaza.
