IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi on Wednesday warned that the security situation at the Gaza Strip border is very fragile and may deteriorate rapidly, Army Radio reported.

"The IDF must be ready to operate in a broader manner that what it has in the past," Ashkenazi said at a Hanukka candle lighting ceremony with IDF troops from the 202nd Paratroop Battalion near the Strip."Recently, there have been a lot of incidents near the border fence and the combat in the area will continue," he added.
