By The Associated Press on April 22, 2024.

TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) – The Israeli military said Monday that the head of its intelligence corps has resigned over Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack.

Aharon Haliwa, the head of Israel’s military intelligence, becomes the first senior Israeli figure to step down over the failures surrounding Hamas’ attack.

Haliwa had said in October that he shouldered the blame for not preventing the attack, which broke through Israel’s vaunted defenses.
