Feb 7 (KATAKAMI) — Israeli President Shimon Peres hosted at his Jerusalem residence Monday morning the IDF’s senior command.
At the meeting he told outgoing IDF Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi, “I was privileged to meet all 18 Chiefs of Staff before you. It took me a long time, but now, unlike you youngsters, I can do a real comparison between them. Your contribution to Israel’s security is unique and superb. You were one of the best Chiefs of Staff Israel ever had.” (*)
