Defense Minister Benny Gantz: The world must be aware of this crime against humanity

Defense Minister Benny Gantz toured Israel’s southern border today (27.07.22) in the IDF’s Gaza division, together with Deputy Defense Minister Alon Shuster, General of the Southern Command Maj. Gen. Eliezer Toledano, Head of the Operations Directorate Maj. Gen. Oded Basiuk and Head of the Gaza Division Brig. Gen. Nimrod Aloni.

At the end of the tour, Minister Gantz visited a kindergarten complex in the Kfar Aza area. The protective infrastructure in the kindergartens has been refurbished as part of a wider program led by the defense establishment and IDF within it. The infrastructure in 30 kindergartens located along the Gaza border was refurbished this year, and an additional 25 protected kindergartens were built in the area.

“I have just completed a tour of Israel’s southern region, where we work to ensure security and stability for our citizens, by operating against the Hamas terrorist organization." Gantz said.

"The IDF has revealed examples that show how Hamas endangers Palestinian civilians. Hamas launches attacks from within population centers towards population centers. The whole world must see this crime against humanity." he added, relating to the recent report by IDF showing terror tunnels located near schools and factories. "Israel will operate with precision and force against terror targets, and defend the citizens of the State of Israel.”
