Israel Defense Forces’ Chief of Staff Benny Gantz said Monday the army was prepared and monitoring security developments in the region.
The IDF chief’s comments came a day after an airstrike attributed to Israel killed a senior Hezbollah commander, several members of the Lebanese terror group, and a number of Iranian fighters, including a commander.
“The IDF is prepared, tracking all developments, and ready to act as needed,” Gantz announced. “This statement is not simply a speech — it’s a matter of real operational preparedness.”
The chief of staff did not directly address the alleged Israeli airstrike, in line with Israeli policy.
In the north, several IDF units deployed along the border that were set to go on leave were ordered to stay put, Haaretz reported.
