Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and members of the Security Cabinet, today (Tuesday, 6 February 2018), toured the Golan Heights (Mt. Avital overlook) and were briefed by IDF Chief-of-Staff Lt.-Gen. Gadi Eizenkot, GOC Northern Command Maj.-Gen. Yoel Strick and the commander of the IDF Bashan Division. The tour was to enhance the knowledge of Security Cabinet members.
Prime Minister Netanyahu:
"I am now concluding the tour of IDF Northern Command that we held this morning with the members of the Security Cabinet. I am impressed by the major work the IDF is doing to defend our borders and our state. We want peace but we are prepared for any scenario and I suggest that no one test us.
I similarly promised the widow of Rabbi Raziel Shevach that we would settle accounts with his murderer. I want to praise the ISA, Israel Police and the IDF for doing exactly this.
So it will be with the abhorrent murderer of Rabbi Itamar Ben-Gal. We are all with his family and his widow."
