“The IDF expects its soldiers to behave with composure and in accordance with the rules of engagement,” Netanyahu said in a statement, adding that this incident does not “represent the values of the IDF.” With regard to Thursday’s incident, he said: “I trust the IDF will conduct a thorough, responsible and fair investigation, as it always does.”

IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Gadi Eisenkot, commenting on the incident on Friday, said the military will back soldiers who make mistakes, but will not back those who deliberately violate the IDF’s rules of engagement and ethics. Eisenkot added that an “impassioned dialogue will not be helpful for a determined, professional military.
There is a very significant difference between supporting soldiers and backing those who violate IDF orders and norms.”

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said: “We must not allow this loss of control even at a time when our blood boils. This incident will be dealt with with the utmost severity.”
