  • The Chief of the General Staff, also known as the Commander-in-Chief of the Israel Defense Forces is the supreme commander and Chief of Staff of the Israel Defense Forces. At any given time, the Chief of Staff is the only active officer holding the IDF's highest rank, rav aluf, which is usually translated into English as lieutenant general, a three-star rank. The Israel Defense Forces is an integrated force, ranks are the same in all services. It has a slightly compacted rank structure; for instance, the Chief of Staff is seemingly only equivalent to a lieutenant general in other militaries. Rav aluf means 'arch-general', which would be equal to a field marshal or five star general in other armies and equivalent to OF-10. Wikipedia
