Israel’s Security Cabinet is meeting this afternoon to discuss the Gazan tensions and escalations. Gazans fired over 150 rockets into southern Israel since last night.
While ceasefire talks were being negotiated earlier this week, this morning Egyptian intelligence officially informed Israel that Hamas opposes calm. A senior Israeli army official also warned this morning that Israel was nearing a full-blown military confrontation in the Gaza Strip, adding that the government could begin evacuating local communities.
Maj. Gen. (res.) Yaakov Amidror will discuss the escalating tensions and analyze the government’s response.
Maj. Gen. (res.) Yaakov Amidror was the Former National Security Advisor to the Prime Minister of Israel and the Head of the National Security Council. He served 36 years in senior IDF posts, including commander of the Military Colleges, military secretary to the Minister of Defense, director of the Intelligence Analysis Division in Military Intelligence, and chief intelligence officer of the Northern Command. He is the author of three books on intelligence and military strategy.
