Police are investigating claims of sexual harassment made against Deputy Regional Development Minister Ayoub Kara (Likud), Army Radio reported on Tuesday.

Kara responded to the reports, saying he was unaware of any police investigation into his activities.

According to the report, Kara is being investigated for alleged sexually harassing an employee in the Prime Minister's Office. She submitted the complaint to the police six months ago and various witnesses have been called in for questioning on the matter. Recently, State Prosecutor Moshe Lador authorized an investigation into the deputy minister himself. He is expected to be called in for questioning by the Israel Police's National Fraud Investigation Unit.

The events in question allegedly took place two-and-a-half years before the woman, identified only as "samech," issued the complaint to police.
