IDF Spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari in a press statement says Israel is taking every threat against it seriously, and that fighter jets are ready for “a variety of scenarios.”

“In the past six months, we have been in a multi-front war. We are on heightened alert in all the arenas. We are looking at the threats and foiling them all the time, on several fronts, and are at a high level of readiness for defense and offense. We are constantly carrying out assessments, and take seriously any statement and all enemies,” he says.

“We have strengthened alertness in combat units, bolstered [air] defense systems, and we have planes prepared for defense, and ready for attack,” Hagari says.

He says the IDF is deployed “at all of the borders” and is ready “for a variety of scenarios.”

“We must not be complacent, and at the same time, it’s important for me to emphasize that there is no change in the Home Front Command instructions,” Hagari continues.

“Your responsible behavior on the home front saves lives. My only recommendation is to be vigilant and stay tuned for updates,” he adds.
