Benjamin Netanyahu is not just a politician. He has a remarkable history of service in the IDF. From the time he joined the army and become a team leader in the Sayeret Matkal (General Staff Reconnaissance Unit) an elite special force unit he participated in many missions and fought in the Yom Kippur war. The IDF is something that he lives and breathes and believes in.
In his opening words in the video, Netanyahu states: “We have witnessed a significant decrease in casualties in the southern region. In the previous year, we experienced over 1000 terror attacks, and this year it’s 60. This the lowest number we’ve seen in the area surrounding Gaza. We’ve also seen the lowest number of casualties from terror attacks in Judea and Samaria that we’ve ever seen, even though the number of attempted attacks continues to grow. In both cases, the incredibly lower number of casualties is a result of the commendable activities of the IDF and the security forces, which include the special elite units such as the Yamam (Counter Terrorism Unit) that I am visiting today. I am proud of these people. The Nation of Israel needs to see what they’re doing; how they’re saving lives day by day. We’ll continue to give them support so that they can give protection to us all.”
It takes one to know one.
