Israel’s army chief is critical of acquiescence to Hamas ceasefire without due consultation

From Debkafile, November 30, 2006 ...

In a briefing to the Knesset foreign affairs and security committee Tuesday, Lt.-Gen Dan Halutz reported that the heads of government had scarcely consulted the IDF before accepting the Palestinian offer of a partial truce.

The Palestinians tried to stretch the Gaza Strip ceasefire and apply it to the West Bank, but “we snapped this equation,” Halutz said.

He also reported that the flow of war materiel from Syria to the Lebanese Hizballah continues at full spate.
