Today (Thursday), ten female soldiers who served under the command of Brig. Gen. Ofek Buchris, who will be convicted of sexual offenses, published a letter asking to defend him but to keep their identities hidden. “It’s difficult for us to watch and keep quiet about what is happening here in the country,” they wrote. 

“We worked with Ofek closely for long hours, we rode alone in the car with him for long hours and there was always a respectful relationship between us,” they wrote. “There was never a wink, an attempt to touch or even flirt but we did shake hands with a man who we respected a lot as a commander. We don’t know what happened in this case and we will not know. Only two people know the truth.”

One of the girls who signed the letter said that: “We saw the offensive against Ofek, we deliberated and decided to respond to all of those who went against him so that he will understand that he also has support.”
