Gantz Calls for Vigilance and Discretion on Border

Chief of Staff Benny Gantz of the Israel Defense Forces toured the northern border and the Central Command's domain, Friday, and held security assessments with generals and brigade commanders, in light of activities planned by hostile Arabs.

Gantz directed the forces to be vigilant while exercising discretion to protect Israeli sovereignty for Land Day, as observed by Israeli Arabs and the "March on Jerusalem" being undertaken by Palestinian Authority Arabs in Judea and Samaria and groups of Arabs and other Muslims on Israel's international borders.
