German Army commander in Israel

Gen. Volker Wieker, recently installed Chief-of-Staff of the German Armed Forces, was in Israel on Tuesday for an official visit as a guest of IDF Chief-of-Staff Lt. Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi. It is one of Gen. Wieker’s first official visits abroad in his new job and will include a visit to Yad Vashem, where he will lay a wreath at the memorial to Holocaust victims. He is also slated to hold meetings with several IDF generals and tour Israeli Army bases and other facilities. The visit is the latest of several high profile military guests which the IDF has hosted over the past year, including senior generals from the US, Canada, the UK, Kenya, Bulgaria and other allied countries.
