Israel’s army chief of staff backed down after he criticized a government decision to withdraw from two Palestinian neighborhoods in Hebron. “I regret if anyone was offended and if my statement was worded and understood not as I intended,” Lt. Gen. Shaul Mofaz said. Angered by Mofaz’s criticism, Defense Minister Benjamin Ben-Eliezer had reprimanded him and ordered him not to grant interviews until further notice.
