Israel Katz praises launch of 'Northern Shield', commends Netanyahu

Intelligence Minister Israel Katz praised the newly launched Operation Northern Shield, saying he welcomes "the IDF's action to destroy the Hezbollah tunnels, which were intended to remove a serious threat from the State of Israel and the residents of the north. Israel once again proves its high intelligence and operational capabilities against every plot and against every enemy. "
Katz singled out Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as being responsible for the operation.
"Prime Minister and Minister of Defense Benjamin Netanyahu should be commended for the fact that, despite the difficult pressures, he led the right process of decision making in the security cabinet, while exercising broad and comprehensive discretion in favor of the security of the State of Israel," Katz said.
