Israeli Generals expressed dismay yesterday over a violent assault on a senior Air Force officer perpetrated by a gang of soldiers.
Ynet reported yesterday that Maj. A., deputy commander of a squadron at the northern Ramat David Airbase was attacked near his home within the airbase.
An Israeli military source confirmed yesterday that three soldiers, who serve in a technical support unit, assaulted the officer over the weekend after he issued a complaint over their reckless driving on base premises, in violation of strict military regulations.
The three soldiers, apparently outraged by the pilot’s decision to lodge a complaint with their commanding officer, initially threatened to kill him at the presence of his children. They later attacked him outside his home, located on base, with wooden clubs until he nearly lost consciousness.
"The assailants crossed a red line. We saw evil in their eyes," he said.
Military Police detained the soldiers for questioning and opened an investigation into the incident. A military spokesman said its findings will be submitted to the Military Advocate General for further review.
According to Global Times Senior IAF officers have previously complained about having to deal with soldiers from harsh socioeconomic backgrounds. “With all due respect to the notion of the people’s army, my feeling is that the balance has been violated.”
"With all due respect to the notion of the people's army, my feeling is that the balance has been violated," the commander of a fighter jet squadron said in the wake of the incident.
"I'm forced to invest too much time in solving soldiers' personal problems at the expense of operations ... that has a price and we are paying it," he said.
Ynet reported that Israeli army elite are in shock. “No one can believe that soldiers dared to strike a senior officer”
Earlier this week we learned about an Israeli who set himself on fire during Tel Aviv social protest. Israel, so it seems, is on the verge of disintegration.
The images of social protests and violence towards top commanders within the military are clear signs of collapse of the Israeli national, cultural and ideological bond.
It is not the Palestinians or the BDS who are going to bring down the Jewish State, it is actually the Israelis themselves.
It is the supremacist and chauvinist ideology embedded within the Israeli philosophy and culture that make the Jewish State into an unbearable concept for its citizens let alone the indigenous people of the land i.e. the Palestinians.
