Israeli Defence Minister Amir Peretz has appointed a commission to investigate Israel’s conduct in the war with Lebanon. It will be headed by a retired army chief and former government minister
plus three retired generals and the chairman of Israel’s biggest company, Teva.
Peretz wants the commission to examine the performance of the military and the rest of Israel’s defence establishment during the campaign. He’s told the commission to deliver an interim report within three weeks. An opinion poll showed that two thirds of Israelis wanted such an inquiry to take place.
