Today (Tuesday), the Chief of the General Staff, LTG Herzi Halevi, conducted a tour and situational assessment with the Israel Fire and Rescue Services Commissioner, Fire Commissioner Eyal Caspi at the 'Gibor' Camp on the northern border, with the participation of the Commanding Officer of the 91st Division, (BG) Shai Klapper, Northern Region Commander in the Israel Fire and Rescue Services, Assistant Fire Commissioner Yair Elkayam, and additional commanders.

Following this, they met the forces that operated last night (Monday) to put out the fires in the north, and noted the determination and professionalism with which they operated.

Additionally, the Chief of the General Staff spoke with the commanders of the Golani Brigade who are currently on the northern border.

Halevi stated, "We are approaching the point where a decision will have to be made, and the IDF is prepared and very ready for this decision. We have been striking here for eight months and Hezbollah is paying a very, very high price. Hezbollah has increased its attacks in recent days and we are prepared after a very good process of training up to the level of a General Staff exercise to move to an offensive in the north. Strong defense,

Israel Fire and Rescue Services Commissioner, Fire Commissioner Eyal Caspi, said, "The collaborations that take place routinely with the IDF lead to the required preparation and readiness of both bodies, and are implemented in practice also in wartime, while maximizing the relative advantage of each of the formations for the benefit of the State of Israel."
