Yael German, a former lawmaker in Foreign Minister Yair Lapid’s Yesh Atid party, will be Israel’s next ambassador to France.

Former Yesh Atid MK Shimon Solomon is named as the next ambassador to Angola.

The two are Lapid’s political appointees.

The position has been filled by temporary envoys since Aliza Bin-Noun stepped down at the end of 2019.
