‘Leave the IDF out of politics,’ 200 former security officials say

Some 200 former members of the defense establishment signed a letter on Monday expressing concern over attacks on Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, due to his stance on the IDF soldier under Military Police investigation for shooting dead an injured Palestinian knife attacker who was lying on the ground in Hebron last month.

Ya’alon, together with IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Gadi Eisenkot, have come under fire for saying that the soldier violated military ethics and norms, and for condemning the shooting.
