      Gantz Responds to Criticism on Fleeing Soldiers Video


      In his official reaction to a recent video uploaded to Youtube that shows IDF soldiers running from a mob of Arab rock throwers, rather than use their weapons to defend themselves, IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz said that “the IDF is ready for all eventualities, although we are not hungry for blood. Unfortunately in the recent operation in Gaza, there were some people who were killed who were not terrorists. In the future, we will continue to avoid hurting civilians.”
