Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday said that he "understands the magnitude of the disappointment" felt by Maj.-Gen. Yoav Galant in the wake of the cancellation of his appointment to IDF chief of General Staff.

The prime minister also addressed his decision to appoint Maj.-Gen. Benny Gantz to IDF chief of General Staff, saying "the stability of the IDF is important at this time and therefore I decided over the weekend to make a determination on the issue of appointing a new chief of staff."
