Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon appointed a new IDF spokesman on Monday, in the presence of the IDF chief of staff and other senior commanders.
The new spokesman, Brig.-Gen. Moti Almoz, formally head of the IDF Civil administration in Judea and Samaria, will take the place of Brig.-Gen. Yoav Mordechai, who completed his two-and-a-half-year tenure as spokesman.
"We worked overtime to make the IDF's work transparent, truthfully, equally, and fairly," Mordechai said. The IDF Spokesman Brigade is more operational than ever, with people deployed in all field and regional brigades," he added.
Following his appointment, Almoz said his new roles requires wisdom and sensitivity, and thanked Mordechai for his work.
