IDF suspends troops seen singing Hanukkah songs into Jenin mosque loudspeakers

Footage circulating online shows IDF soldiers in the West Bank’s Jenin taking over the loudspeaker system in a local mosque and singing Hanukkah songs and the Jewish prayer of Shema Yisrael.

The IDF says the soldiers have been removed from operational duty, immediately after their commanders saw and investigated the videos.

“The behavior of the soldiers in the videos is serious and is completely contrary to IDF values,” it says, adding that “the soldiers will be disciplined accordingly.”
