The IDF is ready for any possible escalation amid the ongoing wave of terrorism, as well as the Muslim holy month of Ramadan and the upcoming holidays of Passover and Easter, IDF spokesperson Brig.-Gen. Ran Kochav told Ynet, adding it is even prepared for a second Operation Guardian of the Walls.

"We are looking at Gaza, Lebanon, Syria and even the Sinai peninsula," he explained following the launch of Operation Break the Wave to combat the ongoing wave of terrorist attacks. "Our operations stretch far and wide and have deployed our air defense systems. The Gaza Division is prepared to defend on the ground. We will continue to thwart attacks with determination, creativity and every necessary measure."

The Gaza front has been quiet, he said, ever since Operation Guardian of the Walls, the IDF's most recent round of fighting with Hamas in May. "We are prepared for a second Guardian of the Walls, or any action that may be necessary." Clashes broke out between Palestinian rioters and Israeli forces in the West Bank, with one Palestinian man injured, Palestinian media reported Sunday morning. According to the report, Israeli security forces used crowd dispersal methods to break up the clashes.

Kochavi told IDF commanders Sunday evening that the IDF must be ready for a lengthy potential conflict, which he dubbed “Operation Guardian of the Walls 2”, modeled after Israel’s two-week operation against the Hamas terrorist organization in the Gaza Strip in May 2021 – a conflict which spilled over into Israel, with Arab rioting across much of the country.
