Two days after Yom Kippur, the leader of the Machane HaMamlachti, Benny Gantz, condemned the attack on the worshipers at Dizengoff Square in Tel Aviv.

In his remarks at the memorial ceremony for Lt. Col. Navia Mar'i, z"l, Gantz said, "I very much hope that the greatness of spirit that Navia demonstrated in his life will also be a portion of us in other places."

"And I wish that this greatness of this soul would have been shown by all those involved in the shameful event on Yom Kippur, where despite the rulings of the High Court and in the name of the desire to pray in separation in Tel Aviv, provocations were made on one side, and in the name of the desire to "to protect the public space", violence was used against worshipers on the holy day and the prayer was disrupted. The law has been taken into the hands of both sides and mutual respect has disappeared both from one and the other. Both sides have something to do with soul-searching, and so for all of us as a society."

As mentioned, yesterday (Tuesday), the Leader of the Opposition, Yair Lapid, issued another statement regarding the events of Yom Kippur, criticizing the protest that disrupted the prayers. This was in contrast to his initial statement in which he expressed support for the protest.

Regarding the security situation in the south, Gantz stated: "If Hamas thinks that promoting a civilian policy involves burning fields and terrorizing the region, the outcome should and will be completely reversed. Incendiary balloons and terror are experimental balloons that need to be blown up, and they will face the consequences if they don't stop. On the other hand, calm and promoting the return of the prisoners can bring about a change in direction. I know that the security system holds all the tools to restore quiet to this important and beautiful place."
