Former IDF Commander Warns of Escalation

Maj. Gen. Gadi Shamni, former head of the IDF’s Central Command, warned on Sunday that the situation in Judea and Samaria could escalate in the wake of the vandalizing of the military vehicle that serves the IDF Commander of the Samaria Regiment, Col. Yoav Yarom.

"There have been situations in the past where one of the commanders of the divisions in Samaria prepared his weapon because he felt threatened," Shamni told Army Radio, adding, "I have no doubt that if things continue as they are, one day we will have a situation where there could be a shooting - either they will fire on an IDF commander or a commander or his soldiers will open fire.”
