“In September 2020, after an investigation by military police, an indictment was filed against an officer that served in the Israel Defense Forces Military Intelligence Corps with the military court.
“The officer was arrested following a decision by the military court and the legal process on the matter had not been decided. On the night between May 16 and 17, 2021, the officer was found at a military detention facility in the center of the country in serious medical condition. The officer was transferred for medical treatment to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. His family was notified.”
The statement added that “the army’s Internal Investigation Unit opened a probe into the circumstances of his death and upon its completion, its findings will be handed over to the military prosecutor for examination. Hearings in the officer’s case were held behind closed doors and a sweeping gag order was placed on them. An additional gag order was issued on the Internal Investigation Unit’s probe into the circumstances of his death.”
More information will presumably emerge about this case.
