IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi on Monday appointed Maj.-Gen. Benny Gantz as the new military attaché to Washington DC in place of Maj.-Gen. DAN HAREL, who was recently appointed deputy chief of staff. In the past, Gantz has served as head of the Northern Command, and was one of the youngest IDF officers to receive rank of Major General. Gantz is also perceived to be a candidate for chief of staff when Ashkenzi's term ends in approximately four years. Maj.-Gen. Avi Mizrahi, who is head of the Logistics and Medical Branch, was appointed head of Ground Forces Command in place of Gantz, And Brig. - Gen. Danny Biton was promoted to rank of Maj.-Gen. and will replace Mizrahi.
