“In the name of the IDF, I express my condolences and embrace the family”

Lt. Gen. Gantz opened by speaking about the terrorist attack on Friday night (Mar. 11) in Itamar, in which five members of the Fogel family were murdered.

“I entered the house, saw the scene, and found no connection between the murderers and human beings. I have seen many scenes in my life, but I’ve never seen anything as inhuman as this.  In the name of the IDF, I express my condolences and embrace the family.”

On the changes occurring in the Middle East, Lt. Gen. Gantz said, “The instability in the area is at a historic level. We need to adjust our allocation of power in the face of threats. We must develop our knowledge and through that cope with any challenges waiting for us, on all fronts.”

“Security forces will succeed in getting their hands on the perpetrators of the massacre”

Defense Minister Barak stated that he was “certain that security forces will succeed in getting their hands on the perpetrators of the massacre” in Itamar.

Defense Minister Barak also discussed the changes occurring in the region and the implications of those changes for the IDF.

He wished Lt. Gen. Gantz well in his new position and told the assembled officers that the people of Israel trust and have faith in them.
