Ten soldiers from the IDF’s Kfir Brigade were charged on Thursday with aggravated assault for allegedly hazing a fellow soldier as part of a hazing process within the unit.

The hazing and beating began when the soldier – Saar Mizrachi – entered his company’s warehouse and touched the “seniority stick” in violation of “company rules.”

One of the more senior soldiers in the company ordered Mizrachi to enter a nearby room where he was beaten by a group of soldiers. Mizrachi sustained serious injuries and is still hospitalized.
