Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi is the "senior IDF general" whose credit card number was obtained by a soldier, a military court revealed on Sunday evening, following petitions from Israeli media outlets to lift the veil on the officer's identity. According to details of the investigation revealed over the weekend, a soldier - who worked as a security guard in the Kirya military headquarters - succeeded in gaining access to one of the most secured offices in the IDF compound, from which he stole the Ashkenazi's credit card number as well as a gun on display that the chief of staff had received as a gift. The soldier was behind two other thefts of M-16 rifles from the base. One was stolen from an office in April and the other from a soldier who was attacked while on guard duty in mid-July.
