A full-page ad that we published this morning in Israel’s most widely read newspaper, Yedioth Ahronoth. The reckless killing of 58 Gazans is the outcome of the ongoing occupation, indicating this country’s loss of moral leadership. As soldiers who served there, it’s clear to us: demonstrations must not be dispersed with live ammunition.

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.
