Galant appeals cancellation of IDF chief appointment

Maj.-Gen. Yoav Galant on Sunday will appeal to the High Court of Justice against the cancellation of his appointment as the next IDF chief of General Staff.
Galant requested that the court put out an order that will freeze the appointment process, giving the Turkel Comittee a second opportunity to discuss his appointment as IDF chief.
The government is expected to cancel Galant's appointment Sunday morning following Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak's decision to appoint Maj.- Gen. Benny Gantz as the 20th IDF chief of general staff.
