On a tour of the North with new IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz on Tuesday, Defense Minister Ehud Barak said that despite the upheavals in Tunisia and Egypt, the peace treaty with Cairo will hold.

Discussing the situation in Lebanon, Barak said that Hezbollah remembers the hit it received in 2006, but that the situation has since deteriorated and therefore, soldiers still need to be prepared.
