Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told Channel 2 news on Thursday that the indictment against former Prime Minister's Office chief of staff Natan Eshel was "very harsh."

Eshel resigned last month from his post after admitting to misconduct after other senior PMO officials brought charges against Eshel for harassing a female staffer.

The prime minister said while he thought the staffers who broke news of Eshel's relationship with the female staffer to the attorney-general's office "acted well," they should have approached Netanyahu first.
