In his first response to the mounting Galant document scandal, Maj.-Gen Yoav Galant hit back harshly at the allegations against him Sunday, calling the Galant document "false, malicious, evil slander," and denying any contact with the office of PR man Eyal Arad. The response came in a letter he wrote to IDF Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi, which was published by Channel 1.

"I have not had any contact with Eyal Arad's office," Galant wrote. "I did not turn to him for counseling, I did not hire his services, nor did he work for me in any way. The document is false, malicious, evil slander."

The Galant document, exposed by Channel 2 on Friday, purportedly details a PR campaign to secure Maj.-Gen Yoav Galant the IDF chief of staff position.
