Charlottesville alumna to be next IDF Military Advocate General

Yifat Tomer-Yerushalmi has been named the IDF's next Military Advocate General. She'll be Israel's second female major general. Haaretz reports:

Tomer-Yerushalmi will replace Sharon Afek, a man, who has been military advocate general since 2015. [Defence Minister Benny] Gantz appointed Tomer-Yerushalmi on [Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Aviv] Kochavi’s recommendation, after also consulting Attorney General Avichai Mendelblit.

Before becoming Kochavi’s adviser on gender issues, Tomer-Yerushalmi headed the military prosecution’s legal advice and legislation department. Before that, she was a military judge, eventually rising to the post of deputy president of the Jaffa military court.
