MK Marciano calls on Peretz to fire Halutz

Labor MK Yoram Marciano called upon Defense Minister Amir Peretz to dismiss Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Dan Halutz on Tuesday. In a letter he sent to Peretz, Marciano wrote "Halutz's behavior testifies on our number one soldier and on his attitude toward the IDF." Marciano was referring to the news that Halutz sold off his stock portfolio a few hours after the cross-border raid that sparked the fighting in the North.
