In signal to extremists, Alon appointed GOC Central Command

IDF chief and defense minister appoint Brig.-Gen. Nitzan Alon to oversee army's operations in Judea and Samaria, bringing him into direct contact with the settler population • Appointment of commander, viewed by some on the far Right as an "extreme leftist," may be IDF's response to extremist settlers following week of violence • Settlers view appointment as "declaration of war against Jewish settlement."

Lilach Shoval and Efrat Forsher

Brig.-Gen. Nitzan Alon. Respected in the army, loathed by the extreme right.
