Military chief Aviv Kohavi condemns an incident of Druze soldiers in the Israel Defense Forces allegedly hurling an explosive device at a Palestinian home in the West Bank.

“This is a serious act that goes against the values ​​of the IDF. This is not our way,” Kohavi says during a military conference held yesterday.

“We must condemn such behavior,” he adds.

Three soldiers from the Druze community were arrested over the incident, raising suspicions that it was related to the case of Druze teenager Tiran Fero, whose body was seized by Palestinian gunmen from a West Bank hospital after a car crash last week.

The detentions of two of the suspects are extended until Sunday.
