Second senior IDF commander quits following Gaza raid that went awry | The Times of Israel

The Israel Defense Forces’ Military Intelligence Directorate is reportedly in crisis after a second senior commander stepped down in the aftermath of a raid by special forces in the Gaza Strip that went awry last year.

The commander of the Intelligence Directorate’s Special Operations Division recently quit angrily after learning the military had asked his predecessor to rejoin the army and replace him, the Yedioth Ahronoth daily reported Thursday.

The commander, who can only be identified by his rank and the first Hebrew letter of his name — Brig. Gen. “Gimel” — learned about the attempt to oust him from media reports two months ago, the report said.
