“So when I was a soldier, you need three things if you want to shoot someone: means, ability and intention… And now we see IDF snipers shooting at unarmed Palestinians when they’re 300 meters away from the fence. That’s a huge change from when I was a soldier, and I think that this is a red line that I personally thought we’re never going to cross.” Watch Nadav Weiman, a former soldier in an IDF sniper unit, talk to SkyNews about the IDF’s rules of engagement in the face of the recent deadly shootings in Gaza>> We, IDF soldiers, will not be used as pawns in the hands of an incompetent government, which sends us to fight in Gaza, time and again, instead of offering real solutions to the situation in Gaza and along its border with Israel. Join us this Friday, May 25, to read and hear testimonies from soldiers who served in Gaza and broke the silence>> https://goo.gl/w8UPUz

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.
