New head named for Defense Ministry’s Civil Administration

Col. Fares Atila has been named the new head of the Civil Administration, a Defense Ministry body that’s part of the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories unit that regulates much of the daily life in the West Bank.

Atila will replace Brig. Gen. Ghassan Alian, who currently serves in the position and was recently tapped to serve as the next Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories.

Atila currently serves as commander of Israel Defense Forces’ Populations Department, which is responsible for liaising between the military and the minority groups who serve in it. He will be promoted to the rank of brigadier general before entering his new position.
