Report: Imad Fares Returns as Reservist

Chief of Staff Benny Gantz of the Israel Defense Forces and Northern District Commander Yair Golan approved, this week, the return of Brigadier General Imad Fares for reserve duty, according to a Tuesday report by the Yediot Acharonot daily.

Fares is expected to get a combat-front commander's role in the Northern Command. He was dismissed from active duty after giving a false report to his superiors that he was the driver in a crash of a military vehicle when his wife was the one behind the wheel.
