IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi spoke publicly for the first time on Wednesday about the "Galant document" affair, stating that the incident "hurts all of us."

The leaked document purports to show that Arad Communications, a public relations firm, drew up plans to damage the reputations of senior IDF officers in a bid to promote OC Southern Command Maj.-Gen. Yoav Galant’s candidacy to succeed Ashkenazi as chief of General Staff.

At a graduation ceremony for IDF officers in Tel Aviv, Ashkenazi stated that the IDF has been giving police investigating the document their full cooperation for the last ten days. Ashkenazi added that the IDF trusts the police to find out the truth behind the document as soon as possible.
