An Israeli military court extended by four days the detention of a soldier who admitted to falsely reporting he saw another soldier take a ride from a car with Palestinian plates. The soldier’s claim prompted massive searches and an investigation into a possible terrorist kidnapping. The soldier said he had wanted to impress his commanders and test the level of readiness on his base, adding that he never intended for things to get out of control.
