IDF Chief of Staff candidate calls for targeted killings of Iranian officials


Maj.-Gen. Eyal Zamir, who is in the running for IDF Chief of Staff, has called for the assassination of leaders of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) in a new policy paper for The Washington Institute for Near East Policy.

Zamir is in the running to replace IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Aviv Kohavi, along with Deputy Chief of Staff Maj.-Gen. Herzi Halevi and former Ground Forces Commander Maj.-Gen. Yoel Strick. He’s spent the last year at the institute as a visiting military fellow.
