The IDF General Staff Forum, headed by the Chief of IDF General Staff, discussed in a two day conference doctrinal topics which deal with the way in which the military is activated and in the methods of planning and their results, in the different levels of command. The conference was hosted in the guesthouse in Kiryat Anavim.

The discussion will encompass the methods of situation appraisal and the operation of the commands in differing levels of conflict, as in war, limited war, low-intensity conflict and more. At the same time the basic assumptions and differing views on warfare as well as the organization in preparation for it, that lead from being in differing levels of command, were coordinated, as well as the mutual ties between the levels of command.
