Major-General Amir Eshel, head of strategic planning for the IDF, was named the next chief of the Israel Air Force on Sunday.
Eshel was appointed by IDF chief Benny Gantz, over Binyamin Netanyahu’s choice Brigadier General Yohanan Locker. Eshel succeeds Major-General Ido Nehushtan.
Last month Eshel voiced concern that a nuclear-armed Iran could deter Israel from confronting Iranian-backed enemies Hezbollah and Hamas on its borders.
