IDF Completes First Joint Command Course in 20 Years

The IDF Staff and Command College completed on Wednesday its first course in 20 years that included all operational commanders of all branches of the armed forces.

The 10-month training course involved 58 officers under a new format introduced after changes were made following lessons learned in the Second Lebanon War. IDF Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi noted that the success of the training can make the difference "between failure and success and between stalemate and victory."
