Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz approved Wednesday the creation of a new military rank for non-commissioned officers, which is meant to enable the promotion of the career servicemen despite a decision to raise the IDF’s retirement age.

The new rank will be the second highest for non-commissioned officers and will come right before the rank of chief warrant officer.

The decision to create the new rank comes as the IDF is trying to raise the average retirement age of its career servicemen to 50. Combat officers will continue to be eligible to retire at 42.
