IDF: Soldiers acted inappropriately in breaking AFP reporters’ cameras

Soldiers acted against instructions Friday when they broke the cameras of two AFP reporters who had gone to the West Bank Palestinian village of Beit Faruk to film a demonstration, the IDF said.

On Saturday, the IDF said it was investigating the incident and that the commanders had been informed of the matter, but an initial inspection showed the soldiers acted inappropriately and “against the orders of their commanders,” and would face disciplinary measures.

MK Nachman Shai (Zionist Union) wrote a letter to Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, demanding that he instruct the IDF to investigate the incident and make it clear that such behavior must change.
