Israel’s Central Command has released a series of videos detailing their wargaming and additional training for combat soldiers in the occupied West Bank, anticipating an escalation of the protests among Palestinians.
Protests in the West Bank have been growing for weeks, initially fueled by hunger striking detainees held by Israeli forces without charges, and then by the torture and death of one of the protesters over the weekend, while in Israeli custody.
Though so far the only death among protesters was after an arrest, Israeli troops have responded to demonstrations and stone throwers with live ammunition at times, and have wounded a large number of civilian demonstrators.
The military leadership is trying to convince troops to actually respect the rules of engagement, which explicitly ban the use of live ammunition in response to stones, and admonished them to avoid killing or wounding more civilians, warning it will just make protests worse.

The military leadership is trying to convince troops to actually respect the rules of engagement
In a well-disciplined, well-run, well-regimented army, troops obey orders and abide by the rules of engagement without the need to be "convinced" to respect the rules of engagement.
But when the Zionist leadership has for more than 65 years telling its forces that whatever they do to Arabs is acceptable and often commendable, then it comes as no surprise that Israeli forces are suddenly insubordinate and out of control.
Israel wants a violent intifada and will do anything to provoke it.

'The only democracy in the Middle East' is also the ultimate police state. Why is that ? Because War is Peace.
