Miriam "Miri" Regev (Hebrew: מרים "מירי" רגב‎, born 26 May 1965) is an Israeli politician and a former Brigadier General in the army. She currently serves as a member of the Knesset for Likud, having previously worked as the IDF Spokeswoman.


Regev was born in Kiryat Gat in 1965. In 1983 she joined the Gadna, where she became a platoon commander, serving in the position until 1986. She then began serving as the IDF Spokesperson's representative in the Israeli Southern Command. Regev continued advancing in the military public relations ranks and was promoted to Deputy IDF Spokesperson in 2002. In 2003, she was appointed coordinator of the national public relations efforts at the Israeli Prime Minister's Office in preparation for the Iraq War. After a short stint (2004–2005) as the Chief Press and Media Censor, she was promoted to the rank of Brigadier General and to the position of IDF Spokesperson in 2005.[1]

She served in this position during Israel's disengagement from Gaza in 2005 and the 2006 Lebanon War.[2] In 2007, she was discharged and was succeeded by Avi Benayahu.

In November 2008, Regev joined the Likud party, saying that she had been a supporter of the party's platform for many years.[3] She won twenty-seventh place on the party's list for the 2009 elections, just high enough to enter the Knesset as Likud won 27 seats.

She has a Master's Degree in Business and a Bachelor's Degree in Informal Education. She is married and has three children.[1]
