Father Gabriel Naddaf, a Greek Orthodox priest and campaigner for Christian IDF enlistment, said on Tuesday that he is innocent of the allegations of sexual harassment and indecent assault made against him in recent days.

Last week Channel 2 reported an investigation into the priest, including audio interviews with men and women with whom Naddaf had interacted, who accused him of making sexual references and allusions in conversations with them, as well as in Facebook messages in which Naddaf allegedly made similar such inappropriate remarks.

Two days later, a sexual harassment charge was filed against the priest by a discharged Christian IDF soldier.

On Friday, a second complainant filed charges of indecent assault against Naddaf.
