Defense Minister Ehud Barak defended on Tuesday his appointment of Maj.-Gen. Gadi Eizenkot to the position of deputy IDF chief of staff, after coming under criticism from Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein, who questioned the timing of the decision.

Weinstein asked Barak to explain why the appointment was made during an elections season. The criticism came soon after the attorney general issued guidelines to the government to avoid major appointments ahead of elections in order to avoid a conflict of interests.
