This latest IDF action was put into motion following the political echelon’s decision and in accordance with the IDF’s operational plans, and it will continue as per situational evaluation of the IDF General Staff. The forces taking part in the operation are on a very high level of readiness for their tasks after an extensive period of preparatory exercises and thorough planning stages.

The IDF and the Home Front Command have taken the necessary steps in all relevant areas and the residents of these areas are called upon to pay heed to the defense instructions as they are announced in the media.
