MK Chetboun: Remove Soldiers from Security Checkpoints

Following the ‘David the Nahlawi’ incident, MK Yoni Chetboun (Jewish Home) has called for the removal of IDF soldiers from security checkpoints, stating that “Soldiers belong on tours and in war.” The MK is in favor of manning the security checkpoints with police officers instead of with IDF soldiers.

Chetboun added that “Sources from the left use cameras and anarchists to create provocations. In such a state, orders regarding opening fire are no longer relevant. The IDF’s hands are essentially tied.”
