"Former chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen Dan Halutz corrupted the IDF," another former chief of staff, Lt.-Gen. (res.) Moshe Ya'alon, said Thursday. Ayalon slammed Halutz for conducting business dealings "while he was supposed to be working as chief of staff," saying that he led a "culture of corruption," Channel 10 reported. He described Halutz's tenure as being a "big disappointment." Halutz said the criticism was "baseless" and he had no intention of offering a further response.
