Netanyahu Defends IDF Personnel Indicted by Turkey
JPost – Israel’s hand extended in peace is not always responded to in kind by governments in the region, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Tuesday in a cryptic reference to Tuesday’s Turkish court decision to indict four former senior IDF officers.
Speaking at the annual conference of the Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) in Tel Aviv, headed by former military intelligence head Amos Yadlin who was among those indicted by the Turkish courts, Netanyahu said he wanted to say “very clearly” to IDF soldiers and officers that “the State of Israel will always stand at your side, everywhere and everyplace. You defended us, we will defend you. That is an important rule.”
