Shas head and Interior Minister Eli Yishai said that his party will support the appointment of Maj.-Gen. Benny Gantz as the IDF's next chief of General Staff on Saturday.

Yishai clarified that Shas will support the appointment "only if it is clarified that Gantz is approved by the Turkel Committee before the end of [current IDF Chief of General Staff Gabi] Ashkenazi," adding that stability in the IDF comes above all other considerations.
