IDF to hold hearings for soldiers suspected of looting during Gaza conflict

The IDF has ordered a number of soldiers to report for a hearing due to suspicion that they looted a Palestinian home during Operation Protective Edge in the Gaza Strip last summer.

If the hearings lead to indictments, they would be the first indictments relating to the war and, more importantly, the first indictments since the International Criminal Court announced a preliminary probe of Gaza war crimes allegations.

Some top legal experts have said that one chance the IDF may have of avoiding ICC indictments, as opposed to the preliminary probe, is filing its own indictments.
