The Israel Defense Forces announces a series of appointments in the General Staff, a forum of senior commanders responsible for the various branches and departments of the military.

Maj. Gen. Eliezer Toledano, who currently is the head of the Southern Command, will be appointed as the officer in charge of Iran affairs and the Strategic Planning Division.

Brig. Gen. Yaron Finkelman will replace Toledano as head of the Southern Command, and will be promoted to major general in the coming months.

Brig. Gen. Nimrod Aloni will be appointed as head of the Depth Corps and Military Colleges; Brig. Gen. David Zini will be appointed as head of the Training Command and General Staff Corps; and Rear. Adm. Eyal Harel will be appointed as head of the Planning Directorate.

All three will also be promoted to major general in the coming months.

The IDF says the appointments made by Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Herzi Halevi are approved by Defense Minister Yoav Gallant.
