Defense Minister Amir Peretz said during a visit to the North on Thursday that IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Dan Halutz had made the right decision by dismissing former OC ground forces Maj.-Gen. Yiftah Ron-Tal. "I think an officer in the IDF, as long as he is serving, must behave like an officer and not get involved in politics." Ron-Tal was relieved of duty Wednesday after he sharply criticized the failures of the Lebanon war and called for Halutz's resignation.
