JNS.org – Israel Defense Forces soldiers have been cleared of alleged criminal misconduct during the 2014 Gaza War, Israeli prosecutors said Wednesday.

The IDF Military Advocate General (MAG) closed four cases in which the IDF allegedly killed 49 civilians during the war, including a charge that an airstrike near a United Nations school killed several children.

With the airstrike, the IDF targeted three military operatives who were traveling on motorbikes near the school. The military assessments made at the time were in accordance “with Israeli domestic law and international law requirements,” based on the circumstances and aerial surveillance, the MAG unit reported.

Indictments were issued against three IDF soldiers accused of looting, aiding, and abetting. These cases will be referred for criminal investigation.

Another 13 criminal cases have been closed while some are still pending investigation.
