The chief of the IDF Central Command, Maj. Gen. Yehuda Fox is due to end his military service this summer.

Fox, 55, will be wrapping up his three-year tenure as the general in charge of the West Bank region in August, ending a 36-year military career.

The move is unrelated to the resignation of the chief of the Military Intelligence Directorate, who announced earlier today that he would quit over his failures that led to Hamas’s October 7 onslaught.

Fox has not been accused of any involvement in the army’s failures in the lead-up to October 7, and his decision to end his service after completing his current role was not made recently.
