Brig. Gen. (Ret.) Gal Hirsch on Monday lashed out at what he said is a campaign of leaks and defamation meant to sully his name, amid ongoing controversy about his nomination to lead the Israel Police.
In a Facebook post Monday morning, Hirsch said “the campaign of defamation and leaks to the press are harming my reputation. I resent this and am sensitive to it.”
Hirsch also said that he and those supporting him are not in any way responsible for “any claims made against the police or the Investigations Branch and its commander, Asst.-Ch. [Meni] Yitzhaki”, adding that he doesn’t agree with the claims.
