According to The Pit: The Dark Secrets behind IDF’s Worst Leadership Crisis, a book by journalists Dan Margalit and Ronen Bergman, the Special Operations Department of the Intelligence wing is infested with all sorts of corruption: shopping sprees of cheese and sausages, private use of operation vehicles etc. The book hints ex Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi, used the false document prepared by Boaz Harpaz, in order to prevent the appointment of Yoav Gallant to replace him as Chief of Staff, which would have led to extending his own tenure.

The anchor of “Yoman”, Ayala Khasson, exposed (Hebrew) that Ronit Ashkenazi, wife of Army Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi, was in contact with the wife of Boaz Harpaz, suspect of forging the “Gallant Document”. The two exchanged 150 text messages. This is in contradiction of the Chief of Staff’s claim he did not know Harpaz or was in contact with him. The IDF Spokesman said in reply that “Lady Ayala Khasson is running, for some weeks now, a personal campaign against the Chief of Staff, Lt. Gen, Ashkenazi, and for that purpose is abusing the Yoman program she anchors, as well as the entire news section of the Israeli Broadcasting Service”.
