August 22, 2012 22:43

In what appeared to be a response to recent Iranian rhetoric directed against Israel, IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz said Wednesday that "whoever thinks he can eliminate Israel and try to harm our state will discover the deadly force of the IDF."

Speaking at a Golani Brigade rally, Gantz stated that "in recent days we have heard direct threats against Israel's security and the safety of its citizens. These threats display an erroneous estimation of our forces and our abilities."

Gantz said that in the face of the threats facing Israel, the IDF was "primed and ready along the country's borders."
