Italian Chief of Staff General Claudio Graziano landed last night in Camp Rabin, in the Hakirya area of Tel Aviv. He was greeted by an honor guard of IDF soldiers, led by Israeli Chief of Staff Lieutenant General Gadi Eisenkott.

During his state visit, the two Chiefs of Staff will discuss joint security issues, examine the current state of security in the Middle East, and plan future joint military activity.

Eisenkott gave General Graziano a token of appreciation, in light of the strengthening strategic ties between the IDF and the Italian military.
