IDF General: It's Not Like 12 Years Ago

"The threat has changed in the last 10 to 15 years," stated Major-General Gadi Eizenkot at a conference on Wednesday. He discussed Operation Defensive Shield, the major mission in 2002 in which the IDF rooted out terrorists in Samaria. The two-month large scale operation followed a wave of deadly terrorist attacks including the suicide bombing at a Passover seder in Netanya and other atrocities. "Today there is a much more complex pattern," he stated, and pledged to create a deterrence against terrorist organizations.
