Jerusalem - Israeli Group Criticizes Army Over Conduct Probes
Jerusalem - An Israeli group investigating human rights abuses in the Palestinian territories is criticizing the army for not indicting a single soldier despite more than 100 criminal investigations into the troops’ alleged offenses last year.
Yesh Din researcher Lior Yavne says the military’s investigative process was defective and there was improper supervision of the advocate general’s corps.
In a statement this week, he said this leads to a feeling of lawlessness in the Palestinian territories.
His remarks follow a government report released Wednesday on a deadly Israeli naval raid on a Gaza-bound international flotilla in 2010 that killed nine pro-Palestinian Turkish activists. That report called for changes in the way the military investigates itself.
The army says the statistics don’t reflect a lack of due process in the military.
