IDF Chief of Staff Maj.-Gen. Benny Gantz warned on Tuesday of the "expanding arc of threats in the Middle East," as he addressed the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee for the first time.

"Past threats are still relevant, but new threats are developing, which require us to be able to act on numerous fronts strongly and decisively against our enemies who are working on a short time frame," Gantz explained.

The chief of staff also discussed the appointment of the IDF's first female Major-General, Orna Barbivai.

"I'm happy to be the person whose turn it is in history to promote her," Gantz said, adding that she had served in all the jobs necessary for success in her new role.
