Former IDF chief and defense minister Shaul Mofaz landed in London late Saturday, where he was met by Israeli embassy staff who escorted him to his hotel.
Mofaz, who arrived in London on a British Airways flight from Tel Aviv, went through customs and border control without any problems.
Earlier on Saturday, Israeli television reported that Mofaz is at risk of being detained on possible war crimes charges since Israeli authorities had tried and failed to secure diplomatic immunity for him on his trip to London.
