The Israeli general who was in charge of the northern command during the month-long Lebanon war has resigned, the army said on Wednesday.
"The northern command Major General Udi Adam requested this morning to resign his position in the near future," an army statement said.
"The chief of staff has accepted Adam's request and he will be replaced in accordance with IDF (Israel Defence Forces) procedures."
Local media reports said Adam tendered his resignation because of differences with army chief of staff Dan Halutz over the conduct of the 34-day offensive on Hezbollah, which ended under UN-brokered ceasefire on August 14.
