 Maj.-Gen. Yair Golan, formerly head of the IDF's Northern Command, officially took over as deputy chief of staff during a ceremony at military headquarters in Tel Aviv on Monday.

Golan is replacing Maj.-Gen. Gadi Eizenkot, who will become the next chief of staff.

"Yair, you have surely begun to discover a few things that even as northern commander you did not know or see. You are coming with a satchel full from past service and roles. Being deputy chief of staff is something else, since it is the first meeting between building up military force and activating it," said Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon during the ceremony.

"There is a huge amount of work, and the challenges are huge during this challenging period, from every perspective," Ya'alon added.
