IDF: Difficult Days Ahead

Israel’s Security Cabinet met today amid concerns that an Iranian attack was imminent soon after the IDF said it was suspending weekend leaves for troops in combat units.

Yesterday, the military said it was calling up reserve forces to bolster deployment of the IDF aerial defense systems and today that decision was extended to reservists serving in the military intelligence and in the Home Front command.

“I’ve told you repeatedly that we cannot be sure the worse is behind us and we are facing complex days ahead,” military intelligence chief Major General Aharon Haliva told his senior officers today.

Israel was on high alert after a strike in Damascus on Monday that was attributed to Israel killed a senior Iranian commander in the IRGC. Iran vowed to avenge the death of General Mohammad Reza Zahedi – a threat Israeli security forces have taken seriously.

Should the attacks against Israel escalate, preparation and readiness are critical for the IDF. We have no doubt they are taking this threat seriously as they must.
