IDF on punishment of soldier eating non-kosher sandwich: We were wrong

IDF Spokesman Brig.-Gen. Moti Almoz said Tuesday that the army erred in punishing a lone soldier who ate a non-kosher sandwich during an operation of his military unit.

"The IDF will continue to remain kosher, while not interfering in the sandwiches of its soldiers," Almoz said in a Facebook post.

The soldier in question, a lone soldier from the US, was originally sentenced to 11 days in military prison for eating a non-kosher sandwich, but his punishment was later reduced to confinement to his base after the IDF Spokesman’s Office was confronted about the story by an Israel Radio reporter.
