Lawmaker, ex-general Stern: Troops must control their emotions

The soldier in Hebron who shot a Palestinian terrorist in the head Thursday made a grave error and grossly violated the IDF code of ethics, Yesh Atid MK Elazar Stern, a former IDF major-general, said at a briefing for the foreign press Monday in Jerusalem.

Stern spoke at Media Central, a Jerusalem- based NGO that provides support services for journalists based in or visiting Israel, the Palestinian Authority and the region. English copies of the army’s ethics code, The Spirit of the IDF, were distributed to the reporters at the event.
