Liberman instructs IDF to maintain ‘maximum preparedness’ on Gaza border

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman met with IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eisenkot and other top military officials this afternoon for an update on the security situation in the Gaza Strip, his office says.

Liberman instructed the Israel Defense Forces to maintain “maximum preparedness for any scenario,” according to his office.

The meeting comes after the army said earlier today it would deploy additional troops and Iron Dome anti-missile batteries to the Gaza area amid a recent uptick in violence along the border.
