Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman and his wife Ellla, lit the eight Hanukkah lights kindled on the last night of the holiday with the fighters of the Marom Brigade at the IDF's Counterterrorism school.

Liberman told the soldiers, "I support everyone, no soldier is a computer, and no one knows how to make the right decision every second."

"I also backed Elor Azariya and the soldiers from the filmed incident that came out yesterday, and anyone who watched the incident yesterday understands how IDF is a moral and ethical army," Liberman added.

"We all back all the soldiers; you have to understand that there are complex situations and whatever happens, we as the senior political echelon and also as the command echelon will back up all the soldiers.

"This is the important lesson of yesterday. More importantly, the person who was violent during the day was arrested last night, and today her mother will be brought in for questioning. We will bring everyone to justice," the Defense Minister concluded.
