A document apparently  from a strategic communications company seems to reveal a concerted campaign to have Maj. Gen. Yoav Galant appointed as the next IDF Chief-of-Staff, Channel 2 reported Friday evening.

The  document, containing the logo of the company Arad Communications operated by Eyal Arad and Lior Horev, discussed the need to create a positive image around Galant and creating negative images for current chief-of-staff Gabi Ashkenazi and another potential Ashkenazi replacement, Maj. Gen. Benny Gantz.Alternatively, the document presented a possibility of promoting Gantz through the media as a replacement for Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) head Yuval Diskin "and, thus, would be unable to compete for the chief-of-staff position," Channel 2 reported.
