      Gantz: We Must Fight Drugs and Alcohol

      IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz warned on Sunday that action must be taken against the use of drugs and alcohol by soldiers and commanders.

      In a letter to IDF commanders on the occasion of a week marking the fight against drugs and alcohol, the Chief of Staff wrote that in addition to the battle to ensure the security of Israeli citizens, there is another campaign "against an enemy that is among us - drugs and alcohol, a real threat to the lives of IDF soldiers and commanders and the lives of their loved ones and those around them. This is a threat we cannot accept - it must be condemned and taken out of our midst.”
