Military jails Arabic-speaking IDF soldiers filmed laughing and cursing Israel

The military says that five Arabic-speaking Israeli soldiers who filmed themselves joking about supporting Jenin and Palestinians in the wake of an IDF raid there this week have been sentenced to up to a month in jail.

The army says that four of the soldiers were sentenced to 30 days in the brig, while a fifth soldier got 21 days.

“The IDF condemns the comments made in the video,” the army says.

The video, which one of the soldiers posted to social media, shows a group of four men in IDF uniform laughing and speaking in Arabic, saying: “God supports Jenin,” “God supports Palestine” and “Israel can go to hell.”

The soldiers serve in the Logistics Corp and filmed the video while on a military base in the south.
