Hours after the Washington Post reported that Israel and the U.S. carried out a cyber attack on an Iranian port, IDF Chief of Staff Aviv Kochavi says the country is using "a range of tools" to defend itself.
"The IDF has a moral obligation to protect the citizens of this country from the terrorist armies surrounding us, and when the Israeli home front is threatened by thousands of missiles and rockets, we will not hesitate to attack forcefully to neutralize these threats," he said.
"While we do everything we can to prevent civilian casualties, the enemy makes every effort to harm civilians," Kochavi said.
