IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz on Wednesday warned that the tumult taking place in the Arab World has created a situation in which advanced weaponry is not properly secured and in some cases has already been smuggled over international borders into the hands of terrorist organizations.

Speaking while in Brussels at the annual meeting of NATO military chiefs, Gantz said that the current situation "provides fertile ground for extremists to spread their messages of hate, to threaten our peace and to endanger the daily lives of our citizens."
