The Israeli Justice Ministry says Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's chief of staff will resign under a plea agreement in which he admited to sexually harassing a female employee.
The ministry said Sunday that Natan Eshel, a close confidant to Netanyahu, will step down by the end of the month.
The statement says that under the plea deal, Eshel admitted to harassing a female worker in the prime minister's office by taking photos of her, reading her private e-mails and other "unbefitting and unacceptable" behavior.
Eshel will also be reprimanded and banned from public service.
Netanyahu's office declined comment.
