IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Dan Halutz said Tuesday evening that the achievements of the Lebanon war this past summer were expressed in the damage done to the medium- and long-range rocket launching systems. At a press conference follwoig the presentation of the IDF investigations into the summer's war, Halutz went through the various errors of the IDF during the fighting. Stopping Katyusha fire should have been defined as a primary goal, he said, adding that orders should have been clearer and a broad-scale ground incursion should have been called earlier.
