IDF head Aviv Kohavi wraps up his trip to Morocco, the first for an Israeli army chief.

Kohavi returned to Israel a short while ago, after his three-day visit to the North African nation with the military’s international cooperation commander, Effie Defrin, and the head of the Intelligence Research Division, Amit Saar.

The IDF says Kohavi has invited senior Moroccan military officials to visit Israel.

“This unique visit is a result of a shared history, a deep friendship and a promising future. The deep and special bond between our nations is not just a bond between governments and militaries, but a bond between individual people, families and cultures,” Kohavi says in remarks provided by the IDF.

“Our common values and challenges create a strong foundation for the deep cooperation between our militaries at the strategic, intelligence and operational levels. This visit is another example of the historic change in the region and the role the IDF has in creating future partnerships,” he adds.
