Kadima leader Shaul Mofaz said Wednesday that he has full trust in IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz to make the right decision in the case of an IDF officer who was videotaped striking a Danish man in the face with his rifle.

"The images are bad but what lies between the pictures and what actually happened needs to be investigated," Mofaz told Army Radio. "The chief of staff knows how to make that decision."

Gantz was expected to decide in the coming days whether Lt.-Col. Shalom Eisner will be allowed to remain in military service following the incident, into which a formal investigation was also opened.
