Now is the time to break the silence on the military control of the Gaza Strip. Join us on Friday, May 25, as soldiers, artists, public figures, politicians, activists, and more, read testimonies from soldiers who served in and around the Gaza Strip, and decided to break the silence. Our right to security does not permit the bloodshed of thousands of demonstrators shot with live ammunition. We refuse to remain silent as the government continues to send us to Gaza, time and again, for more violence and occupation. For more information>> https://www.facebook.com/events/212695596178758/

A former soldier in a sniper unit speaks about firing unarmed civilians

10 04 18

Watch Nadav Weiman, a former combat soldier in the Nahal reconnaissance platoon’s sniper team, speak about firing at unarmed Palestinian civilians, and explain why the political echelon must take responsibility for what they sent us to do in the territories: "The IDF's open fire regulations when I was a sniper were means, intention, and ability. Then in [Operation] 'Protective Edge' after we threw fliers - everyone could be shot at. And today we see that open fire regulations are [applied to] unarmed demonstrators."

The State Attorney's Office Virtual Reality

The public's trust in the State Attorney's Office must be in tune with its performances. The investigation of Dean Issacharoff and branding him as a liar, undermines this trust.
