Maj.-Gen. Yoav Galant appealed to the High Court on Wednesday, after Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein and State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss rejected his appointment as IDF Chief of General Staff.

Referring to the investigations by Weinstein and Lindenstrauss, Galant said: "A parallel investigation like this - on the same complaint and for the same purpose - harms each of the investigating groups."

He added that the two were "competing...leading to the discrediting of each institution that 'lost' the competition."

On Tuesday evening, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu canceled Galant's appointment as the next army chief, because Weinstein said Galant's behavior in a land dispute in Moshoav Amikam "raise significant legal difficulties regarding the reasonability of appointing him as Chief of General Staff."

An appeal was served by Galant's lawyer, Dori Klagsblad, on Wednesday.
