More testimonies were made against Prime Minister spokesperson David Keyes, according to reports by Israeli media Wednesday night.

Keyes was publicly accused of sexual assault on Twitter Tuesday by New York State Senate candidate Julia Salazar. Keyes denied all claims, but a short time later Shayndi Raice, a reporter from The Wall Street Journal, came out as the second woman to accuse Keyes in a Twitter post.“I had a terrible encounter with David Keyes once and 100% believe her,” Raice wrote. “I knew this would come out about him at some point."



New reports now suggest that two additional women complained against Keyes five years ago, when Keyes visited the Washington Research Institute a number of times before he became PM spokesman. Allegedly, the women complained to their superiors that Keyes "was aggressive" towards them.

Times of Israel reported Wednesday of ten additional women who raised complaints against Keyes since 2016. The women apparently reached out to the Times of Israel to express their testimonies but currently wish to remain unknown.
