Israel's army chief of staff: ‘Storm brewing at home’

Israel’s army chief of staff has called on Israeli forces to act with responsibility in the face of massive social upheaval over the government's plans to launch a judicial overhaul.

“This hour is different to any that we have known before. We have not known such days of external threats coalescing, while a storm is brewing at home,” Lieutenant General Herzi Halevi said in remarks made public by the military press office.
