IDF Lauds Givati Commander After Media Storm


After the media controversy over false allegations that Givati Brigade Commnder Col. Ofer Winter had "discriminated" against women by uninviting star singer Sarit Hadad, the IDF praised the commander for his role in Operation Protective Edge.

Arutz Sheva was on the scene at an event honoring the Givati soldiers held Tuesday at Nahshonit Park, located east of Tel Aviv, in which the founder of the brigade, Brig. Gen. (res.) Yehuda Duvdevani, remarked "I hope that in the future we will have more commanders that will walk in his (Winter's) path."
