Defense Ministry Diplomatic-Security Bureau head Amos Gilad told Israel Radio Tuesday that reports of an increased possibility for a multi-front war are too simplified and not true.

Gilad was responding to comments made by OC Home Front Command Maj.-Gen. Eyal Eisenberg on Monday who predicted that "a winter of radical Islam will arrive and as a result the possibility for a multi-front war has increased, including the potential use of weapons of mass destruction.”

Gilad said during the interview that "Our security situation has never been better: There is no internal terrorism, there is a deterrent both in the North and South, there is no coalition of Arab armies and regimes in the region."

"With this, however, there are processes taking place that are noteworthy," he added.
