Comptroller Will Investigate Conduct During Protective Edge

Jerusalem—After the UN’s creation of a committee to investigate Israel’s actions dur­ing Operation Protective Edge, and allega­tions that Israel violated international law during the operation, the state comptroller Judge Yosef Shapira decided today (Wednes­day) to open and investigation of the deci­sion making on part of the military and politi­cal leadership in the government and the IDF.

The State Comptroller said that he would review the military and political decision-making processes during the operation in Gaza. Among other things, he will examine is­sues such as the provision of security to res­idents of the state, Home Front Command activities, security solutions for civilians, and services for civilians in conflict areas.

Shapira instructed that in addition to au­dits currently being conducted of the secu­rity regarding the tunnels, the office will ex­pand the investigations to other areas such as the activity and preparation of the Home Front Command during the fighting, securi­ty solutions for civilians, and services for ci­vilians in conflict areas.

The State Comptroller’s Office em­phasized that recently, they received doz­ens of inquiries and complaints regard­ing the conduct during the various stages of Operation Protective Edge. “This is a complex inspection,” a ministry official said. Accordingly the comptroller in­structed the division of audits, allowing a more comprehensive examination of the subject.
