Defense Ministry Dir.-Gen. Maj.-Gen. (res.) Gabi Ashkenazi said Sunday he hoped to do justice to the position of IDF chief of staff. "I feel a great responsibility and I hope to justify the faith the government has put in me," he said. The cabinet voted unanimously on Sunday to approve Ashkenazi as the 19th IDF chief of staff. Ashkenazi replaces Lt.-Gen. Dan Halutz, who resigned in January.
