 US Wants to Revise IDF Fighting Rules

A US State Department spokesman said Washington “will continue to pressure Israel at the highest level to urge it to review its policies and practices in this regard to ensure this does not happen again.”

The Israeli side, represented by Naftali Bennett, has already responded to such a statement.

“Instructions to open fire for our soldiers will be determined by the IDF commanders, regardless of any pressure, internal or external,” Bennett said.

“The truth is that there are Palestinian terrorists who are trying to kill the citizens of Israel at any moment. Not vice versa. Our hand is not easy on the trigger, but our moral duty — it is to strike at terrorists, and, thereby, save human lives, ", — he added.
