JNS.org The Israel Defense Forces’ new training complex in the Negev will be named after late former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, Chief of General Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz said Sunday, Israel Hayom reported.

The Ariel Sharon Training Complex (or the City of Training Bases, as it is commonly known) is an ambitious IDF undertaking that will see numerous military training schools relocating to the new complex. Policymakers hope the pooling of resources will cut costs, as well as free up lucrative real estate in central Israel, and create jobs in southern Israel.
