Prime Minister Naftali Bennett appoints a new head of the Israel Atomic Energy Commission.

Bennett taps Moshe Edri, a current Defense Ministry official who served for 31 years in the IDF, including as chief of special forces in the Air Force, and completed his service as a brigadier-general.

“Moshe Edri is the right person at the right time,” says Bennett. “His impressive performance, his in-depth understanding and his willingness to take on any task at the national level, left a deep impression on me even in my role as defense minister… I have no doubt that he will meet the challenges and the great tasks that exist in our regional reality.”

Edri will replace the body’s current chairman, Zeev Snir, who has been in office since 2015 and whose term ends in June.
