Israel must expect many future rounds of fighting with its enemies, the head of the IDF’s Northern territorial Command, and former head of Military Intelligence, Maj.-Gen. Aviv Kochavi has warned.
Speaking to an annual meeting of the 188 Armored Corps Brigade on Sunday, Kochavi said Operation Protective Edge – the 50 day war against Hamas last summer – was "one round of fighting, and many more will follow it." His comments were made available by the army on Monday.
Col. Tomer Yirfrah, commander of the 188 Brigade, also spoke at the meeting, and addressed recent security incidents in the north. "Recently, winds of war blew around us, and the brigade is fully prepared."
