Recently, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu visited the IDF soldiers defending Israel’s north as tensions intensify with the terror group Hezbollah. JNS reports on PM Netanyahu’s message of encouragement to the troops:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited troops serving in the Upper Galilee city of Kiryat Shmona on Monday amid shelling by Lebanon’s Hezbollah terror organization, vowing to do “whatever is necessary” to restore security to the Jewish state’s northern border.

“I chose to come to Kiryat Shmona on the day of shelling and anti-tank missiles. I very much appreciate the service you and your friends are doing here—to protect our northern borders and also to send a message to Hezbollah,” Netanyahu told soldiers serving in the border region.

“Hezbollah miscalculated us in 2006 and is making the same mistake now,” he said, referring to the Second Lebanon War, which saw hundreds of Lebanese terrorists killed by Israeli forces.
