Israel Defense Forces Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Aviv Kochavi said on Tuesday that the military's most recent draft cycle in August saw the highest number of recruits enlisting in combat units in years.
"These are the highest figures seen in the last seven years,” Kochavi said at a handover ceremony for the commander of the military’s Ground Forces. "This is a testimony to the readiness and sense of mission of the recruits."
