IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz visited a tank division in the North on Monday, a day after pro-Palestinian demonstrations in the area resulted in multiple casualties.

"We must continue to maintain a high level of alert and be prepared," said Gantz. We are prepared to deal with every obstacle and to activate our defenses against possible terrorist threats and against mass attempts to cross our borders."

Gantz met with soldiers stationed at the border, IDF OC Northern Command Maj.-Gen. Gadi Eizenkot, and the commander of the division, Brig.-Gen. Eyal Zamir. They provided him with a detailed summary of the last 24 hours, information on the deployment of soldiers in the region and plans to take pro-active steps to deal with the current situation.
