The General Security Service (GSS) has decided to place Deputy Chief of Staff Maj.-Gen. Benny Gantz under bodyguard protection, Channel 2 reported Tuesday.

The move comes amidst a growing threat of terror attacks targeting senior IDF officials, particularly by Hizbullah. The terrorist organization has repeatedly vowed to avenge the 2008 assassination of its military commander, Imad Mughniyeh.
