Israeli Military Issues Apology for Controversial Drill Simulating Settler Abduction of Palestinian

The Israeli military has issued an apology for conducting a military training exercise that simulated the abduction of a Palestinian by an Israeli settler in the occupied West Bank. The drill comes amidst a concerning surge in settler attacks on Palestinians.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu criticized the exercise, deeming it offensive to Jewish settlers and labeling the scenario as “detached from reality.” The military, responding to the backlash, released a statement of apology on Tuesday.

Israeli military spokesperson Daniel Hagari acknowledged the error, stating, “The scenario in question should not have been practiced, and is an error. We will investigate and learn, and we are sorry to anyone who was hurt by this.” The apology reflects a recognition of the sensitivity surrounding such simulations, especially during a period marked by heightened tensions and real-world incidents of violence in the occupied territories.
