Israel’s Defense Minister Benny Gantz toured the Israel Defense Forces Central Command on Tuesday and held a situation assessment with senior commanders.

According to a statement by Gantz’s office, he was joined by IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Aviv Kochavi, the commander of the Judea and Samaria Division, representatives from the Shin Bet intelligence agency and other senior officials.

“Israel has no desire to harm the routine lives of Palestinians, and we are seeking economic and other civilian measures in order to continue strengthening our coordination with the Palestinian Authority. If any terror organizations rear their heads, we will make sure to take them down,” stated Gantz.
