Prime Minister-designate Naftali Bennett will retain Brig. Gen. Avi Blot in his role as military secretary for the time being. National Security Adviser Meir Ben-Shabbat will also stay in office until after his successor is appointed to ensure a smooth transition. Both top officials were appointed by Benjamin Netanyahu.
Bennett will meet with Blot and Ben-Shabbat later this evening for his first security briefing as premier.
