IDF General: ‘Israel Not Prepared for Next War’

( A former top Israel Defense Forces officer blasted the IDF’s top brass Thursday, laying the blame on them for botching the "embarrassing" war in Lebanon in 2006, and said that due to a low level of training the army is unprepared to for the next one.

Major-General (res.) Moshe Ivri-Sukenik was most recently commander of the IDF’s Northern Corps until he resigned earlier this year, and also held the post of commander of the IDF’s ground forces several years ago. In a Thursday conference on the ground war in Lebanon, Ivri-Sukenik, who chaired an internal probe into one of the battles of the war, condemned what he called a flawed training program.
