Galant Quiet in South t

OC Southern Command Maj.-Gen. Yoav Galant warned on Wednesday that the quiet in Israel's South may be temporary. "It's true that we are after the first rain and the sun is shining - but one can see dark clouds on the horizon," Galant said during a tour with heads of regional councils marking a year since IDF Operation Cast Lead. However, Galant stressed that the IDF was training and preparing to face the trouble ahead, and added that "civilians are rightly preparing themselves for another round of fighting."
