IDF Chief of Staff Aviv Kohavi declared Thursday that an officer suspected of secretly filming female soldiers will be expelled from the armed forces. In his first public response to the case after a gag order barring publication of the matter was lifted the day before, Kohavi wrote in a letter to soldiers that “we will not accept any direct or indirect harm to both men and women.

“This behavior is serious and wrong and we condemn it,” he wrote in the missive, marking International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. “In parallel with the criminal proceedings and bringing him to justice, we will strive for his immediate dismissal.”

“The principle we have established is ‘zero tolerance’ and we will act on it in the face of any deviation,” he said. Kohavi urged the creation of an environment in the army that “respects all those serving in the IDF” through proactive education, study, monitoring and enforcement that encourages “reporting every incident without exception” so that it can be swiftly dealt with.
