The IDF must show “fairness and decency” to all of its soldiers even when they have failed in their duties, but must also “deal severely” with criminal violations, former military advocate-general Maj.-Gen. (res.) Danny Efroni told a conference in Jerusalem on the Hebron shooter.
Sponsored by the Jerusalem Center for Ethics, the conference on Monday was titled “The Soldiers, They Are Our Children Until…” and focused on debating what kind of support the state must give its soldiers who have violated their duties. The conference comes in the shadow of the trial of Elor Azaria that has mesmerized the nation.
