IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Aviv Kochavi visited the Ramon Air Force Base and the Iron Dome battery on Sunday, according to the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit.

Kochavi was accompanied by the commander of the Israeli Air Force Maj.-Gen. Amikam Norkin. He met with squadron commanders and spoke with crews and technical staff about their operational activities in all sectors.

Kochavi also flew with the base commander Col. G in an F-16 Sufa and then visited the Iron Dome battery, where he met with air defense troops as well as battalion and battery commanders.

The visit to the base in southern Israel dealt with the extensive activities of the IAF during the recent flare-ups in the Gaza Strip, and the ongoing missions in defending the country’s skies.

“You work around the clock to ensure the implementation of the mission which is an inseparable part of the operational activity,” he said. “The Air Force is a powerful, strategic arm of the State of Israel, and you are partners in it. Each of you have a part in ensuring Israel’s security, thank you very much.”
