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