IDF Home Front Commander Maj.-Gen. Eyal Eizebger completed a four-year term on Tuesday, and his successor, Maj.-Gen. Yoel Strick, took up his position at an official ceremony at the Command's Ramle Headquarters.

The ceremony was attended by Maj.-Gen. Gadi Eizenkot, who said, "In a reality in which... the borders between the battlefield and the home front have become blurred, and in a reality in which the civilian public is exposed to the dangers of terrorism and enemy projectiles, the importance of the Home Front Command, as a strategic Command that is involved in every escalation or war, is rising." Eizenberg said during his speech that the past four years have seen a regional shake-up and a change in the nature of war.

"Our common work in the civilian sphere has reached the hearts of the masses of the Israeli public, and its fruits have grown into the 'orange revolution' [the color of the command], which is based on planting a culture of readiness for emergencies," he added.
