Bennett: Give Soldiers Precise Instructions

Jewish Home party chairman Naftali Bennett attended on Monday evening a memorial service at the yeshiva in Sderot for the victims of the 2008 Operation Cast Lead in Gaza.

Speaking about two recent incidents in which IDF soldiers were seen retreating rather than firing back at Arab rioters, Bennett said, "At a time when we witness soldiers finding themselves in complex situations, we must understand that the role of the political and military leadership is to equip the soldiers not only with training and weapons, but also with precise instructions and moral clarity.”
