The case of alleged sexual misconduct by aide to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be closed, resulting in his resignation from the post, Channel 2 reported on Wednesday.
David Keyes, Netanyahu's spokesman for foreign media, was accused in mid-September by at least 10 women of sexual misconduct. The accusations all stemmed from actions he allegedly did before being appointed an aide to Netanyahu.
The Civil Service Commission reached a deal with Keyes, the report said, in which the case will be closed and he will step down from his position.
In September, Keyes was accused by Julia Salazar, a New York politician, of sexual assault
, a claim echoed by 10 other women weeks later.
Keyes denied all accusations, saying in a statement, "This false accusation is made by someone who has proven to be repeatedly dishonest about her own life. This is yet another example of her dishonesty."
