IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz on Tuesday warned terrorist organizations not to test the strength of the IDF, saying that all attacks against Israel would be answered with a harsh response, Israel Radio reported.

Speaking at a Navy ceremony in Ashdod, Gantz said that the Eilat attacks, continued rocket fire from Gaza and the terror attack at a Tel Aviv nightclub earlier this week prove that Israel must be prepared to deal with threats of every kind.

Gantz added that the IDF has an obligation to do all it can to free all of Israel's captive soldiers, including Gilad Schalit.
