Three IOF Soldiers Who Took Part in Gaza War Commit Suicide

Local Editor

Three Israeli occupation soldiers who had taken part in the Zionist offensive against Gaza have committed suicide due to psychological problems.

A report by the Israeli daily Maariv said on Monday that the soldiers, who were members of the elite Golani Brigade, “had suffered psychological problems” in connection to their participation in the 50-day war.

It added that two soldiers had committed suicide near the border with the Gaza Strip, while a third killed himself in “central Israel”.

The newspaper added that the Israeli military police are investigating reasons behind the suicides.

The Israeli army has not made any comment about the incident.

In 2013, eight Israeli soldiers had killed themselves, according to a source in the army’s psychological health department.

Israel unleashed brutal attacks on Gaza in early July and later expanded its military campaign with a ground invasion into the Palestinian territory. Over 2,130 Palestinians lost their lives and some 11,000 were injured. Gaza Health officials say the victims included 578 children and nearly 260 women.

According to Israeli sources, more than 70 Israelis were also killed. Palestinian officials put this number at more than 150.
