IDF Colonel Defends Soldiers from False Accusations


An IDF colonel is defending soldiers from false accusations of war crimes. IDF (res) Col. Bentzi Gruber spoke to Arutz Sheva's Reality Bytes podcast with Josh Hasten about his organization "Ethics in the Field," which seeks to explain the difficult decisions Israel Defense Force soldiers are faced with - often within seconds. Gruber stated that the Israel Defense Forces go above and beyond to insure a minimum amount of collateral damage in battle.

"We feel that sometimes the other side just spreads lies about Israel," he stated, "and when they keep telling them again and again, someone has to say no."
