IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi lauded the police announcement that no top IDF officer was involved in forging the Galant Document.
On Thursday, Ashkenazi met with Israel Police Insp.-Gen. Dudi Cohen and was updated about the investigation.
“It is now clear that great damage has been caused to the IDF and that the accusations against the military were baseless,” Ashkenazi said. “I never believed that anyone in the IDF was involved in this affair.”
Ashkenazi said that he planned to hold a special meeting of the General Staff in the near future to discuss ways to improve the IDF’s image in the public and restore the people’s faith in the military.
“We do not have the privilege to stop even for one moment the work we need to do to be prepared for the challenges that are still ahead,” he said.
