She confessed to her actions during a routine investigation by the IPS Information Security Branch in recent days. Upon receiving the disturbing information in the industry, it was decided to transfer the case to the Unit for the Investigation of Prison Guards in Lehav 443.
During her interrogation, it emerged that other female guards had intimate contact with the terrorist, who was removed from his prison cell when the interrogation began. Subsequently, three additional female soldiers were summoned for questioning at Lahav 433 at the beginning of this week. At the same time, in accordance with developments, additional IPS officials are expected to be investigated to clarify the circumstances of the incident in which a security prisoner managed to keep a cellphone in his prison cell and allegedly have intimate contact with female soldiers.

Minister Ben-Gvir ordered, already upon taking office, the removal of all female guards from the security wings after 20 years of serving in the IPS – a process that has already begun and in which hundreds of female guards have already been removed from the security wings, and was supposed to end in mid-2024. But now, after the investigation opened by the police on suspicion that female IPS soldiers had intimate contact with a security prisoner, Ben-Gvir instructed last Friday that the IPS prepare to remove all female prison guards from the security wings - within a week to 10 days.
National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir said after the affair was published: "The shocking publication that female soldiers are suspected of having intimate relations with security prisoners is further proof of the necessity and urgency of removing our female soldiers, our daughters, from all wings of security prisoners. According to the progress of the plan, which was formulated in accordance with the policy I outlined, by mid-2025 not a single female soldier will remain in the security prisoners' wings."
