The affair began in February 2020, when clashes broke out between young men and women in the illegal outpost Geulat Zion and Border Police forces. Police then claimed that stones were thrown at the forces and deputies were blocked.

Videos from the incident documented a policewoman spraying from a range of zero gas peppers in front of protesters who refused to evacuate and dragging a girl with her hair on the ground;

As well as spraying gas at a girl who was neutralized by another police officer.

In the DIP complaint against the force commander and against the policewoman, it was alleged that they acted in violation of procedures and used unreasonable force.

A year later, DIP announced that the police would be prosecuted and not criminally prosecuted.

DIP admitted that it had not been updated on its release, as well as on the closure of the case.

It also turned out that about a month later, the policewoman re-enlisted in the police.

Following this, DIP ordered that she be subject to disciplinary action. Indeed, last month the indictment was filed and the police informed Honno that they would consider taking administrative measures as well.

"We are considering applying to the High Court," admitted Advocate Yado of the Honno organization.


The police said: "DIP decided to transfer the procedure to the disciplinary department only a year after its release.

Due to this, the case was closed because a police officer can be disciplinary prosecuted up to 180 from the day of his release.

After returning to the organization, an indictment was filed against her.

As for the recruitment process, lessons have been learned. "
