According to the Israeli army, Corriella is scheduled to meet with Chief of Staff Avio Kochawi and Israeli War Minister Benny Gantz during the two-day visit, IRNA reported.
He will also hold a meeting with the heads of strategic planning, operations and intelligence of the Israeli army.
The talks are said to focus on ongoing operational cooperation between Israel and the United States, maintaining regional stability, and addressing common operational threats and challenges in the region.
Centcom’s new commander’s visit to Israel comes after Secretary of Defense Bani Gantz publicly called for a joint intelligence alliance between the United States, Israel and the Gulf Arab states if talks in Vienna fail to halt Iran’s nuclear enrichment.
