Former IDF chief of General Staff Gabi Ashkenazi said Monday that State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss said in his report on the "Harpaz Affair" that nobody in the IDF leadership intervened in the selection process for his successor as IDF chief of Staff.
Lindenstrauss on Sunday distributed the report to those audited in it. It can not be released to the public until the concerned parties have a chance to respond to it.
In addition to the forged "Harpaz Document" the report also dealt with the bad relations between Ashkenazi and Defense Minister Ehud Barak while Ashkenazi served as IDF chief of Staff.
Speaking at a ceremony in which a street was named after him in Or Yehuda, Ashkenazi said that he made mistakes and the important thing was to learn the report's lessons so that antagonistic relations between the defense minister and the chief of Staff do not develop again in the future.
