Kaplinsky: IDF wasn't adequately prepared for war

Deputy Chief of General Staff Maj.-Gen. Moshe Kaplinsky admitted on Tuesday that the IDF hadn't adequately prepared for the war in Lebanon. Speaking before the reservists' lobby in the Knesset, he noted that there were some mistakes in getting the reservists' equipment ready and that "it took time until we managed to repair the situation." Kaplinsky assessed that if the situation in Lebanon would continue at the current rate, the IDF would have no choice but to call reservists back up, due to what he termed the "loose balance" attained by the implementation of the cease-fire.
