IDF chief Kohavi cuts US trip short in light of terror incidents

Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

Israeli military chief Aviv Kohavi is ending a five-day trip to the US early following the bombing attack in Jerusalem and the news of the body of an Israeli man being held in Jenin.

The military says Kohavi will arrive back in Israel tomorrow afternoon. He was originally scheduled to only depart the US tomorrow afternoon.

The decision was made following a briefing he received from army officials on recent events, the Israel Defense Forces adds.
