Amos Gilad, who has headed the Israeli Defense Ministry's political-military affairs division for the last 13 years, announced Wednesday that he intends to leave his post. The 65-year-old Gilad previously served as head of IDF intelligence's research division and as coordinator of government activities in the territories. A special committee will convene in the near future to find a successor.
Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
