IDF nominally censures officer who used excess force on protesters, Palestinian

The Israel Defense Force announced on Sunday that it would nominally censure an officer who was found to have repeatedly used excessive force against Israeli activists and a Palestinian in the South Hebron Hills.

The military said the officer — Maj. Maor Moshe, a deputy battalion commander from the Combat Engineering Corps — would not be eligible for promotion for the next three years and during that time would also not be permitted to attend a Command and Staff Course, a military program intended to prepare officers for more advanced positions.

However, as Moshe was only recently promoted to his current rank, he is unlikely to receive a promotion within the next three years anyway, making the practical significance of the punishment negligible.
