Four Israeli soldiers have been arrested by Military Police for allegedly beating a Palestinian detainee recently, the Israel Defense Forces says.

One of the soldiers is an officer with the rank of lieutenant.

An IDF source says the incident of “serious physical harm” to the Palestinian man was reported to Military Police by the soldiers’ superiors.

Last month, four Golani soldiers were charged with beating a Palestinian man in the West Bank and abandoning him. Three of them have already been sentenced to jail terms.
