Former Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Monday called to open a commission of inquiry following the findings of the State Comptroller's report released on Sunday, Israel Radio reported.

The report ultimately found that Lt.-Col. (res.) Boaz Harpaz, described as a loose cannon, forged the Harpaz Document himself. The Harpaz Document, originally and briefly known as the Galant Document, was a forged document leaked by Col. Gabi Siboni to Channel 2 on August 6, 2010, describing a plan to improperly advance Maj.-Gen. Yoav Galant to become the next IDF chief of staff, and to undermine the office and power of then-IDF chief of staff Ashkenazi.

Yonah Jeremy Bob contributed to this report.
