Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman decided today to transform the IDF Radio into an Israeli Defense Ministry Unit. The discussion was held following a request by IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eizenkot so that the IDF can focus on core missions.

 The decision corresponds with that of Israel’s Attorney General, which seeks to guarantee the “independence, professional reliance, the programming and organization of the station,” the Israeli Defense Ministry stated. The entire process is supposed to be completed by May of this year.
