Ya'alon warns of consequences if Israel attacked

June 26, 2013 12:48

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon attended a Golani Brigade war drill on the Golan Heights on Wednesday, and issued stern warnings to potential attackers on the other side of the border of severe consequences that would stem from violations of Israeli sovereignty.

Ya'alon said he received a favorable impression from the level of training and readiness exhibited by Golani Brigade soldiers, which, together with additional combat units, "could find themselves called into battle at short notice. Hence this drill, like others held these days, has a special significance, at this time and in this sector."

Ya'alon warned that Israel wouldn't tolerate a violation of its sovereignty or harm inflicted on IDF soldiers or Israeli civilians, either on the northern border or from the Gaza Strip.

"It's important to clarify to all who are on the other side of the border, and who are planning to harm us in one way or another, that we are ready and determined to act with full force," Ya'alon said.
