Today, The Washington Post provided an article that revealed that Israel will be disciplining a number of soldiers involved with the Operation Cast Lead effort. The details highlight the reality that Israel has a robust system for assessing the conduct of its troops and that it takes seriously its obligations under the Laws of War.
The Israeli military announced Tuesday that its top lawyer had indicted a staff sergeant on manslaughter charges and a lieutenant colonel for deviating from authorized protocol during Israel's 2009 military operation in the Gaza Strip.
A third soldier, a captain, was disciplined for not having exercised appropriate judgment during the military operation, which came in response to sustained cross-border rocket attacks by Palestinian militants.
