“A day doesn’t go past in which we don’t have to make decisions that could lead us to a sudden and uncontrollable deterioration,” was the warning given by IDF Chief of General Staff Benny Gantz Tuesday. “That is something that will be with us for the near future. We need to be more alert.”

Gantz, whose comments came at a security conference in the north of Israel, added that the most striking element of the security condition in the region is the lack of stability. He added that Israel must “act quickly and accurately” to combat any threat.

But Gantz also pointed out that the connection between action and reaction might not always appear compatible.

“It doesn’t mean that if we do something on the Golan Heights that there is immediately a big military incident in the Sinai,” he said. “But it could happen. There are other influences, sometimes of less significance and importance, but we can see the connection between Gaza and Sinai, between Gaza and Judea and Samaria, and between Syria and Lebanon.”
