IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz on Monday said that the Middle East "is changing before our eyes and the Syrian president also does not know what tomorrow will bring and it is up to Israel and the IDF to adapt to new realities [in the region]," Israel Radio reported.

Speaking during a Soldiers' Welfare Association ceremony in Tel Aviv, Gantz said that the IDF needs to be prepared for any challenge and what will enable this are its "values, battlefield legacy, and troops on the ground."
