Rights Group Says Israeli Army Fails Palestinian Complainants
By AFP

The Israeli armys inquiries into Palestinian complaints against its soldiers are frequently flawed and less than four percent result in an indictment, an Israeli rights group said on Wednesday.

In a report entitled Alleged Investigation, Yesh Din said more than a third of the 3,150 complaints against Israeli troops filed between 2000 and 2010, were dismissed without a criminal investigation.

And of the 1,949 cases that were investigated by the Military Police Criminal Investigations Unit (MPCID) and the Military Advocate Generals Corps (MAGC), only 112 ‒ a rate of just 3.5 percent ‒ resulted in indictments, the group said.

The group said a total of 190 soldiers and officers were indicted through April 2011, with decisions against nine still pending.

1. Why that's just not true Israel just recently arrested several IDF members for
incidents against Palestinians in the OPT, the fact that these same soldiers also participated in vandalism of IDF equipment had nothing what so ever to do with their arrests :)
