Israel general resigns after claims of harassment against female officers

After being charged with harassing lower-ranking female soldiers, the head of the Israeli naval operations, Brigadier General Shai El-Baz resigned.

The Israeli army said that El-Baz, who took over as chief of operations in May last year and had previously headed the Shayetet 13 commando unit, resigned following news of his involvement in events a decade ago.

The resignation came on the backdrop of a report published late last week by the Israeli TV Channel 12 that a number of women had accused the general of sexually harassing them while they worked in the unit.

“A second military officer identified in a forthcoming television exposé on improper sexual relationships and sexual harassment in the navy announced his retirement on Wednesday, a day after the resignation of the head of naval operations over the report,” the Times of Israel reported.
