Preparing Against Any Threat

Earlier this week on Monday Defense Minister Yoav Gallant visited the Gilboa and Emek HaMaayanot regional councils to conduct a situation assessment with IDF officials and council leaders. The topic: strengthening security in the towns against various threats, with an emphasis on shooting from the Jenin area.

Gallant emphasized the importance of cooperation between local authorities and the IDF. At the end of the tour, Gallant updated the council leaders that the Ministry of Defense would contribute to local security by purchasing drones, arming the civilian security squads with advanced weapons, establishing rapid response teams, and repairing the fences and security routes.

While Israel continues to fight a major war to defend its very existence, it’s important to remember there are many “little wars” occurring in areas like northern Samaria that necessitate increased security.
