"I think the enemy is worried," said IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz to paratroopers on the Gaza border, after a difficult day for the Israeli military in which 2nd Lt. Hadar Goldin was abducted and Givati Brigade recon company commander Maj. Benaya Sarel and Staff Sgt. Liel Gidoni were killed.

 

 

"I am happy to visit here again and see you in action," said Gantz to the soldiers. "At this moment, we must press on. The most severe problem the enemy faces is that you are in his territory, so he better be worried and I believe that he already is."
