Incoming Defense Minister Yoav Gallant has held a brief call with military chief Aviv Kohavi, his spokesman says.

Gallant also speaks with the director general of the Defense Ministry, Amir Eshel, who said he would resign when outgoing defense minister Benny Gantz is replaced.

“The two congratulated Gallant upon entering the role, and agreed that they would meet for a first working meeting tomorrow morning,” his spokesman adds.
