Ashkenazi Regrets Wiener's Ousting


Former IDF Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi expressed his sorrow on Sunday evening over the decision to oust Erez Weiner from the IDF following the Harpaz affair.

"In his capacity as assistant chief of staff, Wiener found himself in an impossible reality due to the conduct of the Defense Minister and his office, which hurt the military, as stated in the State Comptroller's report."

Ashkenazi said that the criticism of Wiener in the report "was exaggerated and ignored this reality, and I regret the termination of Wiener's military service."
