IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz warned Thursday that Israel has the ability to reach every person involved in the recent spate of bombing plots against Israeli targets overseas.

"We know what the source of these attacks is and the planners of these hateful and terrorist attacks should know that whether they are in Gaza, Lebanon or anywhere else, Israel's long arm can reach anyone who tries to harm Israeli citizens and the Jewish people," Gantz said.

Turning to the rocket fire from Sinai on Eilat late Wednesday night, Gantz said that Israel viewed the attack gravely and it was carried out by terrorist organizations operating in the peninsula.

"Anyone who tests us from near or far will find itself facing a strong and smart military prepared to defend Israel and defeat our enemies," Gantz said at a ceremony honoring outstanding officers.
