Following news reports Thursday that Syria had moved troops closer to Israel's border, Defense Minister Amir Peretz said, "extraneous declarations regarding Syria, as well as a heating up the rhetoric, should be avoided. Speaking at a weekly security assessment in Tel Aviv, with various security department heads and IDF officers in attendance, Peretz added that "the situation on the ground will be examined according to the facts and the IDF will deploy accordingly."
