Last week, four IDF soldiers went jogging in Hebron. Three were unarmed, and one was their armed escort. Unfortunately they made a wrong turn, and ended up in a bad area of Hebron.
The local terrorists starting attacking and lynching them. The soldiers were very badly beaten up until they managed to escape.
The armed soldier in the group refused to open fire and was beaten up too.
Why did the soldier not shoot – even in the air?
Presumably because he was more afraid of going to jail than he was in saving his own life.
The JPost is reporting that the IDF is tightening its open fire rules. Even if they are being stoned, a soldier may not fire – even into the air!
Even if they have a firebomb thrown at them, a soldier may not fire – even into the air!
As Palestinian violence is rising, as Arab terrorists are becoming more active, the army/government is playing Russian Roulette with the lives of our soldiers.
Why not just take their guns away from them?
Don't give them guns.
