Israel must stand strong in the face of regional threats, IDF Chief of Staff Lt.- Gen. Benny Gantz said on Wednesday at a memorial marking 15 years since 73 IDF soldiers died in a helicopter crash.

"The Iranian regime is gaining strength in its race for nuclear weapons and is trying to attack Israeli and western targets," Gantz warned, adding that the Jewish state draws strength and determination from its heritage in order to confront these threats.
