IDF’s Northern Command Chief Warns Hezbollah of ‘Awesome Power’

IDF Northern Command head Maj. -Gen. Uri Gordin met on Sunday, February 18, with the northern residents’ local defense groups to boost morale and coordinate further efforts versus Hezbollah and, if necessary, vis-a-vis Syria.

Gordin held a series of meetings with the different groups spread out across the northern border, both to hear their latest security concerns and to personally speed up defense processes to strengthen the groups.

“If we end up needing to go on the attack in the North, it will be with awesome power. The defense of your towns by your local defense groups, both those that have been evacuated and those that have not been evacuated, are a part of our broader defense concept,” said Gordin.

He added, “You are not just residents; you are an inseparable part of the defense line and our greater defense apparatus” in the North.

Further, Gordin complimented the local defense groups not only on their new level of organization and training that they have undertaken since October but also on their contribution to “changing the security reality” in the North, especially versus Hezbollah. (JPost / VFI News)
