Gilad Altman Appointed DM's Yesha Deputy


DM Moshe Ya'alon chose Gilad Altman, of Kibbutz Maale HaHamisha as his advisor on Yesha towns. Altman served as an IDF commando, and later as Chief of the 'Green Commandos', responsible for preservation of national real estate against Arab land theft.

Altman, of strong right wing affiliation, was preferred over Mt Hebron Council Chairman Tzviki bar-Hai, who would be over-scrutinized by the media as a resident of Yesha.
