      Former IDF Spokesman to Sue Ad Executive

      Former IDF Spokesperson Avi Benayahu announced on Tuesday evening that he will be adding the name of ad executive Ilan Shiloah to a defamation lawsuit that he is bringing forward. Benayahu’s announcement was made after it was reported that Shiloah has admitted that he was behind an ad campaign several years ago which accused Benayahu and then IDF Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi for organizing a “putsch” against Defense Minister Ehud Barak.

      "Ilan Shiloah will be added as a personal defendant in the case over the false and slanderous ad," Benayahu’s lawyers told Channel 2 News, and added that "Avi Benayahu is determined to prosecute Shiloah over the false and slanderous ad."
