The Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee will begin hearing testimonies on Sunday from reservists who served in the Lebanon war, Israel Radio reported on Friday. Since the session was announced by the press, dozens of reservists, many of them officers, have approached the committee in the interests of presenting their testimonies. The committee said it was only accepting written testimonies from officers who had brought up concerns of inadequate weaponry and fighting equipment and faulty tank maintenance while serving in the war. In their statements, the reservists said the upper military ranks had ignored the warnings the commanders had given them from the field. The next Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee meeting on the reservists will take place on Sunday at 11 a.m. in Tel Aviv. There will be another meeting to discuss the subject in two weeks in Beersheba, and if necessary, more meetings will be held afterwards.
