British Armed Forces Chief of the Defense Staff Gen. Sir Nick Carter arrived in Israel on Sunday for a visit with senior IDF officers.

Carter was greeted by an honor guard led by IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Aviv Kochavi at the IDF’s Kirya military headquarters in Tel Aviv. Following the reception he held several meetings and toured the northern border with the commander of the 91st Division, Brig.-Gen. Raffi Milo.

On Monday, Carter was expected to meet with the head of the Military Intelligence Directorate, Maj.-Gen. Tamir Heyman, and to lay a wreath in a ceremony at Yad Vashem as part of his tour in Jerusalem.

“His visit emphasizes the developing qualitative engagement between the IDF and the British military,” the IDF said.

During his visit, Carter also took part in the “Arrow of Generations” cornerstone-laying ceremony at Ramat David Air Force Base, a project designed to illustrate the close partnership between the IDF and militaries around the world through landmarks in IDF bases throughout the country.

Arrow of Generations is an initiative by the IDF’s International Cooperation Unit. Its purpose is to investigate and mark the legacy of cooperation and joint activities that occurred throughout the country.

As part of the project, 25 stones will be placed at landmarks to mark the many historical events of partnerships with numerous partners from around the world.

According to the IDF, the ceremony that took place on Sunday “symbolizes the cooperation with the British military” and the stone placed at Ramat David honors Jewish parachutists from Mandatory Palestine who trained at Ramat David during World War II.
