Morocco – the former home of nearly 500,000 Jews who have since emigrated to Israel – decided to normalize relations with the Jewish state in late 2020.
Defense ties between Israel and Morocco are reaching new heights, with joint drills planned as Kohavi visits country.
Comments come after a senior adviser to Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Iran is technically capable of making a nuclear bomb.
IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Aviv Kohavi will visit Morocco for three days, becoming the first Israeli military officer to visit the kingdom.
The values outlined are acting for the good of the state, Defense of the State, its Citizens and Residents; Patriotism and Loyalty to the State; Human Dignity.
If approved, the appointment would be made despite objections from Likud.
IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Aviv Kohavi is said to be opposed to a deal while Defense Minister Benny Gantz is in favor of one.
US-sponsored talks between Israel and several Gulf states have taken place amid increased threats from Tehran.
if Israel's attorney-general, Gali Baharav-Miara, wanted to slam the door shut on Gantz’s idea, she would have. She did not.
With new elections potentially on the horizon, Gantz may run into some legal obstacles when pushing the appointment through during a transitional government.
