Defense Minister Benny Gantz visited the so-called “Depth Command” of the IDF, reviewing operational plans and readiness of forces of the unit tasked with conducting operations far beyond the country’s borders. Ya’akov Katz, editor in chief of The Jerusalem Post and its former defense correspondent, said it ties in with the message to the Biden Administration and the rest of the world that Israel’s military option against Iran’s nuclear program was on the table. He also told reporter Arieh O’Sullivan that IDF chief of staff Lt.-Gen. Aviv Kochavi coming out strongly against America rejoining the JCPOA nuclear deal was a mistake and was another example that neither the Israeli government nor the defense establishment have yet internalized the change in the U.S. administration.
