Eisner to Apparently Lose Command

The Israel Defense Forces' inquiry into the incident on Shabbat, in which Deputy Commander Shalom Eisner was seen striking an anarchist, is scheduled to be submitted, Tuesday, to Chief of Staff Benny Gantz.

It appears to have been recommended that Lieutenant Colonel Eisner be relieved of command but be allowed to stay in the army. At the same time, legal proceedings continue, which might affect his military future.
