Haaretz correspondent Amos Harel reported another case of IDF robbery by Bedouins.
Last week, on the night of September 15, on the last day of exercises in the south of Mount Hebron, the engineer battalion spent the night in an open field.
In the field were two commander's amphibious armored personnel carriers. During the exercise, the soldiers and officers relaxed, and the number of officers in the field “gradually decreased. The senior officers left the exercises in order to prepare with other soldiers of the formation for the holidays of Tishrei.
Only one armed officer remained on the spot with several unarmed soldiers, including girls.
The officer, contrary to instructions, canceled the guards for the soldiers and sent them to sleep, saying that he would guard the camp himself. However, he soon fell asleep himself – and while he was sleeping, the soldiers' body armor, helmets and personal items were stolen.
The IDF press service said that “the incident is being investigated and disciplinary action will be taken.” .
