Speaking at the annual Military Intelligence assessment, Head of the Military Intelligence Directorate Major General Aviv Kochavi said: "We predict that in the next year, the State of Israel will encounter a regional environment that is more unstable, tense and Islamist than in the past.

"An environment dealing with a series of crises – regional and domestic – which raises the threshold of sensitivity of all the players and may lead – even without advance planning – to flare-ups," Kohavi noted.


The IDF Military Intelligence Directorate's annual situation assessment was presented Monday to IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz and the General Staff Forum.


The annual report is intended to brief the IDF's senior leadership on strategic and operational regional developments and to identify key regional threats and opportunities, based on the Intelligence Directorate's assessment of the regional situation.


This assessment is a basis for decision-making at the national and military levels, as well as for the IDF's future operational plans.
