The US is seeking more information from Israel after the IDF announced that criminal charges would not be brought against an officer and a soldier over the 2022 death of an elderly Palestinian-American, who suffered a heart attack after being bound, gagged and abandoned at a construction site in the middle of winter.

“We’re seeking more information from the Israeli government. We’re going to talk to them directly about it,” State Department spokesperson Matthew Miller says when asked about the IDF probe closed yesterday.

“We want to engage with them further about the outcome of this investigation before making any further pronouncements,” he adds.
