Soldier returns cash he stole from Palestinian


JERUSALEM (JTA) — A soldier who stole a credit card from a Palestinian home during Israel’s military operation in Gaza returned the money with interest.

The Givati Brigade soldier used the card to withdraw about $400. He was charged last week with looting and pleaded guilty to the theft.

A few days after the theft, the Palestinian lodged a complaint. The soldier was caught in part because of video footage taken of him withdrawing money from an ATM. He goes on trial Wednesday in military court.
