Tel Aviv. There have been serious allegations of human rights violations against the Israeli army in the West Bank of Palestine. In such a situation, now there is news that the US may announce sanctions on a unit of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) for targeting civilians there. The Axios news site reported this on Saturday. If this happens, it will be the first action of the Biden administration against any Israeli military unit.

The name of this unit of the Israeli army is Netzah Yehuda Battalion. News website Axios quoted sources as saying that under the Lehi laws, Netzah Yehuda soldiers will not be able to train with American soldiers or participate in any activity with American funding. These restrictions will also prevent the transfer of American weapons to the battalion.

Netzah Yehuda has been mired in controversy over right-wing extremism and violence against Palestinians, including the death of 78-year-old Palestinian-American Omar Assad, who died after being detained by soldiers from the battalion. He was handcuffed and blindfolded and left outside in the freezing cold, leading to his death, The Times of Israel reported.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu seems to be very angry with this possible move by America. He has described such action as the ‘height of absurdity and moral degradation’. Netanyahu tweeted, ‘Sanctions should not be imposed on the Israel Defense Forces! In recent weeks, I have been working against imposing sanctions on Israeli citizens, including in my conversations with senior US government officials.’

He said, ‘At a time when our soldiers are fighting the demons of terror, the intention to ban a unit of the IDF is the height of absurdity and moral degradation. The government led by me will take action against these steps in every way.’

Let us tell you that Netzah Yehuda is a contingent of extremely staunch infantry soldiers. It consists of only those soldiers who can serve the force freely without compromising their beliefs. These soldiers are not allowed to interact with female soldiers and are given extra time for religious study and prayer.

In December 2022, Israel transferred the unit out of the West Bank and since then it has been serving mostly in the northern parts of the country. However, the Jewish state denied reports that the battalion was moved due to the conduct of the soldiers.
