Defense Minister of Israel Yoav Gallant says any attack on the country will face stiff defensive measures, before a “powerful response in its territory,” APA reports citing The Times of Israel.

“In this war, we are being attacked from more than one front… from different directions. Any enemy that tries to attack us will first of all be met with stiff defense,” Gallant says to troops at an Iron Dome air defense system battery in northern Israel.

“But we will know how to react very quickly with a decisive offensive action against the territory of whoever attacks our territory, no matter where it is, in the entire Middle East,” he says.

“We have this ability,” Gallant continues, saying that a potential Israeli response will be ” very, very effective, very powerful.”

“One of the things we excel at over the years is that the enemy never knows what surprises we are preparing for it,” he adds.
