Gantz: We need to protect our forces in the field

Israeli troops in southern Lebanon will hold their fire after a truce takes effect if Hezbollah guerrillas stop their attacks, Maj.-Gen. Benny Gantz said Sunday. "If the terrorists stop their fire, than the (army) will halt its fire," he said. "The next few days are days of uncertainty," Gantz added. Speaking to Channel 2 following the daily briefing, Gantz tried to clarify the situation that Israel will face on Monday. He promised that were the Hizbullah to open fire on IDF troops in Lebanon or on Israel itself, the army would react. "We need to protect our forces in the field."
