Brig.-Gen. Gal Hirsch sets the record straight

The IDF top brass failed to realize that a war had erupted with Hezbollah, according to Brig.-Gen. (res.) Gal Hirsch, and they tried to stop him and his division from waging one.

At the outbreak of hostilities with Hezbollah in July 2006, when the terrorist group kidnapped two Israeli soldiers in a widespread attack, Hirsch was commander of Galilee Division 91, the primary IDF division which fought in the Second Lebanon War.
