JNS.org – A top general in the Israel Defense Forces said Wednesday that Israel is sharing intelligence with allies who are fighting against the Islamic State terror group, the Associated Press reported.

Maj. Gen. Nitzan Alon said Iran is still considered the biggest threat to Israel, but that the Jewish state will participate in the global coalition to fight Islamic State.

“From Israel’s perspective, we definitely see Daesh (Islamic State) as an enemy,” Alon said.

Alon expects the battle against Islamic State to be a long one, even though the coalition fighting the jihadist group has made some progress.

“I don’t think that Daesh will collapse in the coming months or year,” he said. “It won’t be easy. Not short and not easy.”
