Brig. Gen. Avi Benayahu was the head of the IDF Spokesperson's Unit from 2007 to 2011.[1]

Benayahu said in January 2011 that he had used a false name on a trip to Britain because he feared arrest for war crimes. According to the Jerusalem Post website, Benayahu stated:

"In my last visit to London, I had to assume a false name because well-funded anti-Israel activists are exploiting universal jurisdiction powers to wage lawfare against us," Benayahu explained. "It's absurd, and I understand the government is trying to legislate changes to prevent this."[2]
