The new head of the IDF's Depth Command took up his position following a ceremony on Thursday at IDF General Command headquarters in Tel Aviv.

Maj.-Gen. (res.) Tal Russo, whose appointment as head of the Depth Command was announced in January, officially took charge during a ceremony attended by IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Gadi Eisenkot and Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon.

The Depth Command is in charge of planning and coordinating military operations far from Israel's shores. Russo replaces Maj.-Gen. Roni Numa, who held the position for six months, and who will become the next head of the IDF's Central territorial Command. 

The IDF set up the Depth Command in 2012, in a process overseen by the current chief of staff, Eisenkot.
