In an official statement released by the Defense Ministry's office Tuesday, Defense Minister Ehud Barak expressed his deep disappointment and sorrow regarding the Attorney General's decision not defend the appointment of Maj.-Gen. Yoav Galant to IDF chief of staff in the High Court.

Barak commented that "Maj.-Gen. Yoav Galant is a the most fitting man to command the army at this time. General Galant is a courageous fighter, one of the best commanders in the IDF, and a man that many people in Israel owe a lot to. I thought and still think that Galant has the ability, experience, composure and vision to command the army. This need is only sharpened by the shocking events that have befallen the Middle East these last two weeks. I disagree with the position of the attorney general, but I respect it."
