The Israel Defense Forces is bolstering the Southern Command and Northern Command with additional infantry and artillery forces, military spokesman Daniel Hagari says.

In a Twitter post, Hagari says the decision to bolster forces was made following a recent assessment and in order “to strengthen defenses for possible scenarios.”

“The forces are at a high level of readiness in the north, in the south, and in [the West Bank]… in order to respond to sudden events and attempts to harm residents,” he says.

“The IDF is capable, ready and prepared to carry out its missions,” Hagari adds.
