IDF hints at first Gaza war crimes indictment against high-level officer

The IDF on Sunday published a speech given by Magistrate Advocate General Maj. Gen. Danny Efroni in which he heavily implied that the IDF was moving toward indicting its first high level officer for a war crimes related issue.

Efroni gave the speech last week at a legal conference in Tel Aviv, but his comments on the 2014 Gaza war crimes investigations have not been reported.

The incident he referred to was when an IDF unit under the command of Lt. Col. Neria Yeshurun allegedly improperly shelled a Gaza pharmacy where one of his officers had been recently killed.
