Netanyahu Names Security Advisers

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has appointed a national security staff of senior Israel Defense Force officers to advise him on defense and security matters.

At present, the staff will be headed by Maj. Gen. Ze’ev Livne, and include the prime minister’s strategic planning adviser, Maj. Gen. (Res.) Avraham Tamir; the deputy staff director for intelligence and assessment, Col. Shimon Shapira; and the prime minister’s adviser on terror, Brig. Gen. Yigal Pressler.

Initial reports indicated that Defense Ministry Director General David Ivri was the candidate to head the staff. But Defense Minister Yitzhak Mordechai had requested that Ivri remain in his current position.
