IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Herzi Halevi holds an assessment at the Northern Command in Safed, vowing to restore security to residents of northern Israel, given repeated rocket and missile attacks by Hezbollah and allied Palestinian factions.
“We are preparing strongly with action plans for the north. Our mission is to bring security. The security situation will not remain such that the residents of the north do not feel safe to return to their homes,” Halevi says.
The IDF says Halevi approved plans of action and instructed the Northern Command to maintain a high level of readiness.
