A new report from Yesh Din, an Israel-based human rights group, faulted the Israeli military’s oversight for abuses against civilians, noting that they have no base in the occupied West Bank to allow Palestinians to file complaints directly.
Instead, the Palestinians have to turn to Israeli human rights groups to get the complaints submitted. 240 reports were received in 2012 by the military, which conducted 103 probes related to them.
Of those 103 probes, not a single indictment was made of a single soldier. There was one indictment in 2011 related to an Israeli soldier attacking a Palestinian detainee. The military insisted that not all of the probes have closed, so it is conceivable that someone might be indicted at some point.
Yesh Din’s report says that 2,207 investigations have been opened since 2000, with five percent of them leading to indictments. The number of indictments has dropped massively in recent years.

Everybody knows the IDF are the most bestest, moral, beautiful, handsome, cool, tough and fantastic bunch of guys and gals the world has ever known. How dare anybody questions them? They were only having fun with Palestinians, just a bunch of bored teens.
They tried to play with Hizbollah but hizb played rough and not fare and all, they drilled a new as*hole for the IDF.
The zionist are doing better than their american counterparts.
i hope there is still few human israelis left.
If they took a little time from violating, they may be able to indict.
