The commander of the 162nd Division, Brig. Gen. Nadav Lotan, warns soldiers following an incident on Friday in which troops assaulted and taunted activists in Hebron.

“Troops who do not behave morally as expected of them will not carry out operational activity until the end of an investigation into the incident,” Lotan says in a missive to officers.

He instructs all commanders to hold talks with their soldiers to “make fully clear what is permitted and what is prohibited, and what is expected of a soldier in the mission of protecting the citizens of the State of Israel.”
