Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon praised the cabinet's approval Sunday of Maj.-Gen. Gadi Eisenkot's appointment to IDF chief of staff.

"He's fulfilled every authoritative role, from soldier to officer, both in and off of the fields, and he harbors vast experience in operations and military command."

Ya'alon spoke highly of Eisenkot's values, praising his integrity, professionalism, independent thinking, and deep understanding.

"He's the most suitable commander to succeed the outgoing chief Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz, in a dynamic era characterized by a shift in IDF protocol to address current threats."
