Report: Fewer IDF Soldiers Held Accountable For Alleged Crimes Against Palestinians In 2012

In the wake of recent events, Yesh Din has published a new data sheet about criminal accountability of IDF soldiers in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. The data indicates a clear downward trend in the rate of indictments served: in the years 2009-2011 indictments were served following 2.5% of the investigations opened into alleged offenses committed by Israeli soldiers while in 2012 not a single Military Police Criminal Investigations Division (MPCID) investigation resulted in an indictment.

The data sheet, based on information provided to Yesh Din by the IDF spokesperson, as well as the organizationís ongoing research, shows the following:

In 2012 the MPCID received 240 complaints and various reports of suspected crimes allegedly committed by IDF soldiers against Palestinians and their property in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.

The MPCID opened criminal investigations into 78 of the 240 reports it received. Another 25 investigation files were opened that year into reports received in 2011. The MPCID opened a total of 103 criminal investigations in 2012.

2. Good news!

Glad there are fewer and fewer such incidents every year.

Hopefully the trend will continue (and 972mag will find a way to spin it negatively against Israel).

7. They are always right on top of the most important issues of the day

It's a wonder they don't get more traffic.

9. They used to

I often tussled with some of the more odious comment-ers over there - but it got to be a bit much.

3. Great news! Israelís Military Police cover-up rate is even better than last year!

Translation: The burden of proof almost near impossible to reach since almost anything an IDF solider does is right and proper if it's against a Palestinian.

It's easier being a rape victim and getting justice than being Palestinian in that part of the world.
