Israel has been active against the ISIS and has apprehended many ISIS-inspired terrorists. They have also detained many Arab-Israelis planning to join ISIS in Syria.
Gadi Eisenkot was the 21st Chief of General Staff of the Israel Defense Forces. He is now a lawmaker of the National Unity alliance in Knesset.
