The IDF says the two soldiers who were arrested last Monday on suspicion of firing an army-issued handgun at a camel near the Dead Sea are from the army’s elite Duvdevan unit. The name of the unit had been under gag order.
The two filmed themselves in the act as they drove on a road in the desert, passed the camel and fired at it, with one of them bursting out laughing as they sped away.
The incident took place in late November, while the two were on leave.
They were arrested last Monday by the Military Police, their service in their unit was suspended, and both saw their remand extended Wednesday by the Jaffa Military Court — for one soldier until Thursday, for the other until Sunday.
