IDF Chief of the General Staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi on Tuesday said that a general who resigned from the army Monday after lying in a car accident report had made a grave error and was right to quit. The statements came amid various calls in the public and among government officials not to accept Brig.-Gen. Imad Faris's resignation, in light of his exemplary record. "Faris is an officer who served for approximately 30 years, has abundant experience and much credit to his name and contributed greatly to the security of the state," Ashkenazi said, but stated that "Imad made a very severe blunder and he understands this. He educated commanders to behave differently. Due to the circumstances, we spoke and he took responsibility, and I think this is the correct step to take."
