Kohavi appointed reserve Maj. Gen. Nitzan Alon to head the committee while basing itself on the work of the previous committees that were established by Brig. Gen. Shaar and Brig. Gen. Luria.

The committee will examine the event with a systemic approach while examining the manner in which the lessons learned from the event were assimilated and applied and will present systemic conclusions and additional command lessons as they may be.
