IDF: B'Tselem Report Another Defamation Attempt

Far left group B'Tselem is once again using half-truths, outdated information, and suspect sources to defame the IDF, an army spokesperson said Monday.

The statement by the IDF came in the wake of a report by B'Tselem that claims that the IDF used harsh anti-riot techniques at demonstrations by Arabs, killing at least 20 Arab protesters a year. The report said that soldiers in the field “consistently violated” the rules laid down by the justice system and IDF commanders regarding rules on opening fire against protesters.
