Israel’s defense minister instructed the army to have a high-ranking officer probe recent Palestinian civilian deaths during Israeli military activities. Benjamin Ben-Eliezer asked for the findings and recommendations by the end of the week, in order to prevent “the recurrence of such unfortunate accidents in the future.” Fifteen Palestinians, including several children, were killed by Israeli army fire in the past week.
