Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein on Tuesday informed the High Court of Justice that "there are major difficulties in accepting the decision to appoint Yoav Galant to be IDF chief of General Staff."

Weinstein said that Galant's appointment is problematic morally but that "the decision to appoint a chief of General Staff includes security, diplomatic, and professional considerations" that the government has the mandate to decide. He stated that the government must make the final decision on whether or not to continue with Galnt's appointment.
