IDF solves riddle of who will be next Deputy COS

Maj.-Gen Yair Naveh has agreed to come out of retirement to fill the position of IDF deputy chief of staff, replacing Benny Gantz. He will serve under the newly appointed Chief of General Staff Maj.-Gen. Yoav Galant from February 2011. Naveh left the military three years ago and is a well respected officer from the Infantry Corps. He was the commander of the Golani Brigade, the Gaza Division and the Home Front Command. Today, he is the CEO of Citypass, responsible for developing the light train system in Jerusalem. Naveh accepted the position on condition that he will be considered to replace Galant in 2014.
