Police will arrange for a young woman who filed a complaint claiming an IDF officer sexually assaulted her near the Tel Aviv port overnight Friday to confront him on Sunday, Israel Radio reported. Six witnesses will be asked to identify the 29-year-old captain, who serves in a unit responsible for the personal security of high-ranking officers, including IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi. Meanwhile, senior IDF officers expressed hopes that the image of the elite unit would not be damaged. "This is an excellent unit, with high quality people. The image of the entire unit must not be tarnished because of this case," the officers were quoted as telling Army Radio.
