The Chief of Staff of the Israeli army (Tsahal), Aviv Kochavi, is due to begin a 3-day official visit to Morocco on Monday, the first of an Israeli military leader of this rank in the Kingdom.
Several Israeli media, and Arabs in general, had mentioned the visit, but confirmation came from the generally well-informed journalist Barak Ravid, who said on Twitter that this important trip should help strengthen military cooperation between the two countries.
