Israel's Chief of Staff is subjected to inspection from Netanyahu's office

The report stated that Herzi "became angry and spoke inside the room to those present, including the Prime Minister's Military Secretary, Avi Gil, and expressed his indignation at the event."


A security officer attempted to search the Chief of Staff of the Israeli Defense Forces, Herzi Halevy, before the start of the “war cabinet” meeting at the headquarters of the Ministry of Defense in Tel Aviv, yesterday, Monday.


This came according to what Israeli Channel 13 reported in a report published this evening, Tuesday, in which it referred to what it described as an “unusual incident.”


The channel reported that “upon his entry into the meeting, Chief of Staff Herzi Halevy tried to make his way into the hall, and then a female security guard from the office of the Prime Minister (Benjamin Netanyahu) asked to search him.”


He added that this was “to ensure that there is no electronic device or recording device inside the hall.”


The report added that Herzi "became angry and spoke inside the room to those present, including the Prime Minister's Military Secretary, Avi Gil, and expressed his indignation at the event."


The report quoted officials in Netanyahu's office as saying that the security guard did not receive any instructions regarding this, and that they do not follow security procedures regarding this.


“The security guard simply wanted to make sure that all participants in the discussion did not have recording devices,” they added.

In a related context, the Israeli army found a detailed map of an Israeli military base, among the plans used by Hamas during its attack on October 7, and an Israeli intelligence source said that this map was compiled using the almost certain use of a spy, according to what was reported by the British newspaper “The Guardian”. today is Tuesday.


The newspaper added that the results related to the plan implemented by Hamas were presented to foreign journalists, and included a map of the military base “more detailed than what was required by the Israeli army itself.”


The report quoted an intelligence source as saying, “The compilation of such a map could only have been done using inside knowledge,” and that “it was almost certainly from a Hamas spy.”
