Israel’s army chief said on Tuesday that he has instructed his charges to meet with members of the controversial veterans group Breaking the Silence and examine its claims that soldiers committed war crimes during their service in the Palestinian territories.

Lt.-Gen. Gadi Eisenkot, the IDF chief of staff, told an academic conference in Herzliya on Tuesday that the military’s legal department should follow up on testimonies by discharged soldiers who claim to have either committed acts or witnessed actions by their comrades that would constitute a violation of the laws of war.
