"The appointment of Aviv Kochavi will be brought to the cabinet for approval today," said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. "[Kochavi] is an outstanding and highly accomplished officer; full of innovation and new programs [for the IDF]."

"I am sure that this will raise the IDF to new heights and give us the ability to meet the same challenges as before." Netanyahu continued. "Thank you to Gadi Eisenkot for a dedicated and important service during a difficult period. We'll have a neat farewell."

Eisenkot and Kochavi asked for a few more weeks for an orderly overlap. January 15th marks the end of Eisenkot's term in office.
