Saguy Resigns from the Army

Download PDF for this date

Military headquarters here yesterday confirmed that Maj. Gen. Yehoshua Saguy, former director of military intelligence, was leaving the army. Saguy reportedly announced his resignation from the army earlier yesterday.

Saguy was relieved of command of the intelligence corps this year in accordance with a recommendation by a commission of inquiry studying the Phalangist massacre of Palestinian refugees in Beirut last year. The commission judged Saguy, on the basis of his own testimony, to have shown indifference and a lack of concern about what was going on in the refugee camps.
