Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, today, visited the ISA Special Operations Unit, together with his Military Secretary, Maj.-Gen. Roman Gofman, ISA Director Ronen Bar, the ISA Deputy Director and the Head of the ISA Operations Branch.

The Prime Minister was presented with the sequence of actions initiated by the ISA Operations Unit, including the operations to rescue the hostages: Ori Megidish, Louis Har and Fernando Marman. Also presented was Operation Arnon in which four hostages were rescued: Andrey Kozlov, Shlomi Ziv, Almog Meir Jan and Noa Argamani.

The Prime Minister was also presented with the operations to rescue the bodies of deceased hostages from the Gaza Strip and the intensive ISA activity in the various sectors, including the significant operations that have been carried out recently in Judea and Samaria.

The Prime Minister met with ISA Operations Unit fighters who took part in the most recent rescue operation.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said to the ISA fighters:

“I am here with daring fighters, who come from all sectors of Israeli society and who make the impossible possible. You took part in many daring operations, which made the State of Israel proud, rescued hostages, and gave us security, so we can complete our missions.

We will not leave the Gaza Strip until we return all of our hostages – living and deceased. We will carry out this mission and many others about which we should keep silent at the moment, with your help.

I have come here to say thank you on behalf of all citizens of Israel. Accept heartfelt thanks for your heroism, sacrifice, intelligence and daring – thank you very much.”
