The head of the IDF’s Northern Command, General Yair Golan, praised the Northern Command during a ceremony in memory of the soldiers who died in the 2006 Second Lebanon War. The ceremony was held in front of a memorial for the soldiers that was erected on Har Adir.
Gen. Golan said during the ceremony that "the Northern Command is now strong, trained and skilled. The lessons of the war were learned, the training was adapted accordingly, the warehouses have been filled up and we have handfuls of action plans."
"I want to tell you that you are role models, a source of encouragement and example, and that we will continue to cherish, support and help," he added.
