Israel’s Head of Military Intelligence Quits over October 7 Failures – EVOL

The head of Israel’s military intelligence service Maj. Gen. Aharon Haliva has resigned from his position in response to the terror attacks on the Jewish state last year.

Maj. Gen. Aharon Haliva wrote a remorseful letter to announce his resignation.

In the letter, Haliva took responsibility for not stopping the deadliest attack in Israel’s history on October 7.

The unexpected assault, by Hamas terrorists, killed over 1,200 Israelis and resulted in over 250 being taken captive.

Over 100 Israeli hostages are still being held hostage in Gaza months later as a brutal war grinds on between Israel and Hamas.

Haliva is the first person in Israel’s military and intelligence to step down over October 7.

He took responsibility within days of the attack for failing to stop it.

However, he waited to resign because of the war.

Haliva will officially step aside when a replacement is named.

In his resignation letter, written in Hebrew, Haliva wrote:

“The Intelligence Directorate under my command did not fulfill its task.

“I have carried that black day with me ever since, every day, every night.

“I will forever bear the terrible pain of the war.”

Haliva called for a commission to investigate the background events
