IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Herzi Halevi flew over the Gaza Strip to view the military’s ground operation and to speak with forces over the radio.

A video published by the IDF shows Halevi identifying the Golani Brigade in Gaza.

“Right now we are waving at you with the flag of the 1st Brigade, and with the flag of the number one country,” says Col. Yair Palai over the radio.

“Tell all your people that you are doing an important job, everyone is behind you, and the entire IDF is working for you to advance, until victory,” Halevi responds.

Halevi was joined by Israel Air Force’s chief of staff, Brig. Gen. Omer Tishler, and the commander of the 100th Squadron, Lt. Col. Shay (his last name is withheld by the IDF for security reasons).
