Israeli leaders hosted IDF Chief-of-Staff Lt.-Gen. Gadi Eisenkot at the Kiryia military complex in Tel Aviv on Sunday to bid farewell to the outgoing military chief.

"We say our goodbyes to you as guardian of our walls," President Reuven Rivlin thanked Eisenkot. "Under your command the IDF did not fight in a war, but continued to fight on all the Israeli fronts.""You acknowledged the advantages and disadvantages of the IDF, and took responsibility for its actions," Rivlin continued. "When you were appointed as Chief of Staff I knew that the IDF is in the right hands, you were the right man in the right place at the right time."

Rivlin concluded saying that "[he] hopes to see you (Eisenkot) at the forefront of public activity, despite your distaste of the spotlight."
