Defense Minister Yoav Gallant issues a veiled criticism of former prime minister Naftali Bennett after the latter revealed he ordered two strikes on Iran when he was premier last year.

“The operations of the air force in all sectors is very impressive and it’s fitting that the roar of the jets drown out the superfluous talk and allow IDF forces to carry out their mission quietly and securely,” Gallant says during a tour of the Ramat David air base.

He also says the Israel Defense Forces is currently engaged in “intensified operations in the Gaza Strip, and they will continue for an extended period until the objectives are achieved. [The operations] are currently centered on Khan Younis.”
