Blue and White party leader Benny Gantz filed a libel suit for NIS 500,000 against a woman who published a post on Facebook describing various acts she accused Gantz of committing against her 42 years ago, when she was 14 and Gantz was 17.
The lawsuit, filed by Adv. Boaz Ben-Zur, Carmel Ben Tzur and Guy Rave, states that the post is false, fabricated, and fictitious from beginning to end.

Ganz announced in his claim that he intends to contribute any amount that will be awarded as a result of the lawsuit for a public purpose, such as donating it to the Association for Rape Crisis Centers.
