IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz alluded to modern threats facing Israel while marking Holocaust Remembrance Day at the site of the Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland on Monday, stating that "there is no weapon or evil intention that can stand against the army of the Jewish people."

Gantz address came as part of the March of the Living, which consisted of tens of thousands of people from Israel and around the world taking part in a memorial in which students march from Auschwitz to Birkenau.

"Each and every one of you – Members of our nation and its friends, Jewish and non-Jewish alike – you are the living proof of the victory of light; Victory of morality; the triumph of Israel. That from the destruction of the Holocaust we grew stronger as a nation and as a people," Gantz stated.

Gantz warned that "in light of the Holocaust and the thousands of years struggle for Jewish survival, we know better than to make light of the existential threats against Israel."

The IDF chief concluded that, "As a military force at the cutting edge of modern technology and operational capabilities, we know full well that enemies who attempt to harm our civilians – are asking for their own demise."
