Senior Israeli military officers step down as mass resignations rattle ranks

High-ranking members of the Israeli military’s Spokesperson’s Unit have reportedly resigned as the regime’s devastating war on Gaza rages on, according to a report.

Israel’s Channel 14 reported on Monday that many officers tendered resignations from their positions.

Among the resignees, the report said, are the second-in-command in the unit head Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari’s team Colonel Butbul, as well as Colonel Moran Katz, and the International Spokesperson for the Israeli military Lieutenant Richard Hecht.

The mass resignations are due to the officers’ protest over operational and personal matters, the report said.

The “unusual” move during wartime reflects a state of disturbance within the Israeli military’s Spokesperson’s Unit, it added.

Earlier, a report in Al Jazeera said Hagari also submitted his resignation. However, the Doha-based news network later retracted the report.

Channel 14 has also since removed the entire story from its website.

Recently, Israeli minister for military affairs Yoav Gallant admitted that the regime’s army is “paying a very high price” in its aggression against Gaza.
