Police began questioning former IDF chief of staff Gabi Ashkenazi in connection with the Harpaz Affair on Thursday morning, they said.
The Harpaz Affair refers to an alleged 2010 plot by Lt.-Col.(res.) Boaz Harpaz, and possibly others, to illegally undermine then-defense minister Ehud Barak’s choice to succeed Gabi Ashkenazi as IDF chief of staff, as part of a more general battle between Barak and Ashkenazi involving both sides allegedly spying and spreading misinformation about the other.
