Israeli Chief of Staff Halevi Expected to Resign: Report

Israeli Chief of Staff Herzi Halevi is anticipated to resign following a series of resignations and retirements among high-ranking military officers who were implicated in the failure to predict the Hamas attack on October 7, 2023. This wave of accountability includes Major General Aharon Haliva, head of military intelligence, who resigned on Monday. Channel 12 reported that many officers are seeking legal advice in preparation for upcoming war investigations. Speculation is rising about Major General Eyal Zamir potentially succeeding Halevi, amidst concerns over the impact of these changes on Israel’s security and political landscape. This turmoil follows a deadly Israeli offensive in Gaza, which has led to significant casualties and accusations of genocide at the International Court of Justice.–News Desk
