Transcript from ‘Israeli Special Forces Commander’ podcast

Chris – Dr Itay, how are you?

Itay – I’m good and thanks for having me on Chris. If you look back a couple of weeks ago, we had a small conflict going on here in Israel. There were rockets from Gaza and a lot of domestic terrorism taking place. I just landed from the United States, I believe it was the 18th of May and I got called in urgently by the military for about twenty days, to be involved in some of the activities.
