The IDF has briefed reporters that it is preparing for the possibility of renewed fighting in Gaza, against the backdrop of warnings made by Hamas against the holding of the controversial Jerusalem flag march scheduled for tomorrow.

Defense Minister Benny Gantz has approved a series of targets for the IDF to attack in the Strip and additional Iron Dome batteries have been deployed at various sites. However, the military sources briefing reporters emphasize that the possibility of violence is not particularly likely.
