IDF Chief of staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz decided on Friday to suspend Lt.-Col. Moly Cohen from his position as commander of the 74th Armored Battalion after he left a soldier behind in a Palestinian village during an operation there earlier this week.

The incident took place on Monday when the battalion entered the West Bank village of Budrus near Ramallah for a night raid. Following the operation, the unit left the village but one soldier was accidentally left behind and was found by local Palestinians who brought him to the security barrier nearby and returned him to soldiers from the IDF regional brigade.
