Maj. Gen. (ret.) Uzi Dayan declared he will be Israel's next defense minister, announcing his intentions to run in the Likud's primary elections.

"I will run in the Likud primaries ahead of the 2019 elections and I will work to serve as the defense minister of the State of Israel,"he said ahead of a meeting of the Likud Central Committee."We are witnessing an escalation on the northern border and in Gaza, and the proliferation of severe terror attacks in Judea and Samaria, which have exacted heavy costs in recent weeks, when Iran is banging on Israel's northern border, terrorists digging tunnels under the feet of residents in the South and North," he said. 

Dayan is the nephew of famed general Moshe Dayan and has been a member of the Likud since 2008.
