The Israeli military is investigating its security protocols for top staff, after the family car of the head of Military Intelligence was stolen from his garage this week, the Israel Defense Forces said in a statement Thursday night.
The vehicle was apparently taken as part of a wave of thefts in the Tel Aviv neighborhood where Maj. Gen. Aharon Haliva lives, did not target the general and did not have security implications, the army said. Other cars were stolen from the same garage.
However, the fact that the theft could take place despite Haliva’s security detail has raised questions.
Haliva became the military’s intelligence chief earlier this year, after previously serving as head of the IDF Operations Directorate.
