JewishPress Logo

Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF) raised $20 million on Tuesday at its annual national gala, held in New York’s Waldorf Astoria hotel.

Some 1,400 guests from the U.S., Panama, and Israel attended the event, where IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz thanked the organization “for choosing to stand by our side and open your hearts to our soldiers.”

Gantz also remarked on recent events, including the seizure of an illicit Gaza-bound arms shipment from Iran aboard the Klos C cargo ship. “Terrorist organizations do not rest and are continuing their large efforts to smuggle weapons into Gaza,” Gantz said.

He returned Israel as Gaza terrorists pummeled the Western Negev with missiles.
