On Thursday the IDF announced that troops had completed their operational preparations for the "Land Day" events and were continuing their preparations for a possible escalation of violence along the border with Gaza.

Within the operational preparations, a Division Headquarters, three infantry Brigades and an artillery unit were deployed to enhance the Southern Command. “The forces are conducting briefings, readiness checks and training for a variety of possible scenarios,” read the IDF statement.



During the day, Kochavi led a series of briefings as well as a situational assessment, where various scenarios were discussed and operational orders were approved.

In addition, the military said that the leave of all combat units that are currently assigned to the Southern Command has been cancelled.
