IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eisenkot will enter a Petah Tikva hospital to undergo an unspecified treatment in the next couple of days, the army says.
The army refuses to divulge the nature of the treatment, citing Eisenkot’s privacy, but says he is expected to be released after a few days.
The ailment was discovered by his doctor two months ago, but has not affected his ability to serve, an IDF source says.
While Eisenkot, 56, is in the hospital, Deputy Chief of Staff Yair Golan will be acting chief of staff.
