Sexual harassment claims against Peres aired from 2nd woman

A week after Colette Avital, a former Labor member of Knesset and a former Israeli consul general to New York, claimed that the late president Shimon Peres sexually assaulted her in the 1980s, Channel 12 airs a short statement from a second person accusing Peres of sexual harassment.

The channel says the woman contacted one of its reporters and described an incident where he pressed her up against a wall and slipped his hand into her shirt without her consent.

The woman was said to have been a former senior secretary. It was unclear when the alleged assault took place.
