Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz and the head of Northern Command Maj. Gen. Yair Golan attended on Tuesday a drill of the IDF’s Golani Brigade at the Golan Heights.

Gantz told the soldiers that “Israeli citizens can rely with confidence on your hard work” and added, “There are things here that can calm the citizens of Israel about the IDF's capabilities.”

He emphasized that “it is very important that we be able to maintain our readiness, because the environment around us is volatile.”

Netanyahu wished the soldiers a Happy New Year and told them, “The army is ready for any challenge, and all of Israel supports you.”
