Israel Navy chief scolded over April Fools` prank

Israel`s navy commander is in hot water over an April Fools` Day prank.



Jerusalem: Israel`s navy commander is in hot
water over an April Fools` Day prank.

Vice Adm Ram Rothberg thought it would be funny to
instruct his top commanders to prepare for a 10-day naval
exercise in Italy, then pull the plug on April 1.

But the information leaked to lower officers, who worked
over the weekend to prepare three ships to set sail. Some
sailors` parents also rushed to the base to give their sons
extra supplies and money.

The military command wasn`t amused. It called the joke
"inappropriate" and said today it was "investigating the
incident in order to derive the proper lessons."

Rothberg became navy chief last year, replacing Eliezer
Marom, whose tenure was marked by scandal after he was caught
partying at a Tel Aviv strip club.
