IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz warned Sunday of threats beyond Israel's borders, saying that Iran was meddling in the affairs of states that pose as threats to Israel and "provides torches to pyromaniacs".

Gantz, speaking during a tour on the Golan Heights, said the Tehran regime was armed with ammunition and rockets, which it was providing to its proxies involved in conflicts in the Middle East.

The army chief said the IDF would continue to defend Israel from the various threats its faces.
