Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz visited the Nevatim air force base on Tuesday along with the IAF commander, Maj. Gen. Amikam Norkin. During the visit, Gantz was briefed on IAF operations and various challenges. The minister also met with combat support soldiers serving in technical units.

At the conclusion of the visit, Minister Gantz said: "I'm ending a visit to the "Adir" squadron, one of the most advanced in the IAF and one of the best in the world. We have the capacity to act, at any range, and with unprecedented operational readiness. I suggest that the countries of the region -- near and far, Iran, Lebanon, Syria and anyone involved in terrorism -- remember that the State of Israel has infinite capacity and we know how to use it."
