Chief of Staff Benny Gantz of the Israel Defense Forces said, Friday, that Israelis should feel free to go wherever they want to despite incidents on its borders.

Interviewed by Israel Defense Forces Radio, the lieutenant-general said,"I do not now foresee an escalation, certainly not in the near future, but nobody can predict the distant future. Meanwhile, the people of Israel must remain strong and calm and go up to the Golan Heights, the north or south, or anywhere. We are here to live."
