Is the War Heading North?

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday morning visited the IDF Gibor base in Kiryat Shmona, where he was briefed by 769th Brigade Commander Avraham Marciano and Northern Command Home Front coordinator Brig.-Gen. (Res.) Alon Friedman.

In their briefing, the commanders discussed the operational situation, recent events in the sector, management of the defensive battle and actions being taken to defend the communities and residents in the north. Brigade and Northern Command actions against the Hezbollah terrorists and infrastructure in Lebanon were also presented.

During his visit, Netanyahu said, “Today I am on the northern border with our heroic fighters and commanders, as well as with our firefighters. Yesterday the ground burned here, and I am pleased that you have extinguished it, but ground also burned in Lebanon.

“We are prepared for very intense action in the north. One way or another, we will restore security to the north.”

Israel is in a very difficult position as it fights in both the north and south, in Judea and Samaria, and defends against terrorist attacks everywhere in between. This, plus all the international pressure hanging over Israel, makes it critical that she stay focused on the goals for this war.
