IDF’s top lawyer opens up on soldier involved in March 24 Hebron shooting

In his first speech since becoming the IDF’s top legal official in October, Military Advocate-General Brig.-Gen. Sharon Afek told attendees of the Israel Bar Association conference in Eilat on Monday he will not consider public surveys when deciding the fate of the Hebron soldier suspected of manslaughter in the death of a Palestinian attacker.

“We enjoy complete independence. We will not make decisions based on public surveys and the changing winds,” Afek said. “We will act professionally and based on substantive [legal] issues… straight in our ways… and with no bias.”
