IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Aviv Kohavi on Monday stridently rejected allegations by Samaria Regional Council head Yossi Dagan that IDF spokesperson Brig.-Gen. Ran Kochav is left-wing and has moved the IDF in that direction. Kohavi said, "Any attempt to connect the IDF spokesman to political activities is part of a smear campaign which must be stopped immediately and has no place" in Israeli public rhetoric.

Dagan made the accusations after a report by media expert Tzahi Davush identifying some members of the IDF Spokesperson's Unit as having posted left-wing comments on social media and after Kohavi recently condemned an IDF soldier for illegally beating a left-wing activist in Hebron.
