DM: IDF Reservists are Irreplaceable


DM Moshe Ya'alon spoke during the Knesset salute to IDF reservists Tuesday, "I condemn any media attempts to incite the public against our loyal regular IDF forces by publicizing their salary levels and making them appear to be at the expense of reservists. This is completely unwarranted. Make your comments and criticize even-handedly, without besmirching thousands of good men, and the entire IDF."

Ya'alon added, "Be certain: The security situation could escalate to full-blown war at any point, and we need a strong contingent of reservists in order to win."
