Uzi Arad Criticizes Netanyahu's Military Secretary


Prof. Uzi Arad, who served as head of the the National Security Council during the 2010 flotilla, criticized on Friday Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's military secretary Yochanan Locker, following the publication of the State Comptroller's report on the flotilla. According to Arad, Locker was influenced by ego games.

Speaking at a forum in Tel Aviv, Arad said, "When a person is going to do something that he has no ability to do - it's a crime. The military secretary not only went beyond his authority, he even called foreign diplomats abroad." Arad also said the National Security Council recommended to remove to some extent the blockade on Gaza, but Locker decided to hold a meeting on the issue on his own initiative.
