Israel’s military police is rounding up soldiers deemed not sufficiently wary of the kidnapping threat. Military policemen posing as ordinary motorists are this week cruising Israel, trying to pick up soldiers who hitchhike in violation of strict rules against the practice, security sources said. Violators could be court-martialed. The move comes following a rash of kidnapping threats against Israeli troops and the abduction and murder of a West Bank settler teen.
