Kochavi: Israel has a range of tools for its defense
Shortly after the revelation of a major disruption of a busy Iranian port by unnamed hackers, Israel’s chief of staff Gen. Avivi Kochavi said in a speech that the IDF uses “a range of tools” to defend itself. The military has a “moral obligation to protect the citizens of this country from the terrorist armies surrounding us,” he said. Without mentioning the cyberwar ongoing between Israel and Iran, he said: “The enemy places thousands of missiles and rockets in its villages, turning them into military targets. On the day of reckoning, that same enemy will find its home front has become a war front. The chief of staff was addressing the changeover ceremony of the Home Front Command to Brig. Gen. Uri Gordin from Maj. Gen. Tamir Yadai who takes over the Central Command.
