IDF commander hails army’s operational success

Sa’ar Tzur, the commander of the IDF’s 401 Armored Brigade, says his unit has seen consistent success in its operations in the Gaza Strip.

“The coordination with other parts of the IDF is excellent,” he says during a press conference with Israeli media outlets.

“We have everything we need, we have an air force, we have a navy, and we have ground forces that assist us during our operations.”

The commander says his unit is operating under the assumption that terrorists are constantly engaged in activities in underground tunnels.

“We know there are terrorists hiding out beneath us as we search for the tunnels,” he says. “[But the] IDF is changing its tactics as needed to deal with the situation.”
