The IDF released a statement Thursday night condemning "any act of incitement or statements of any kind against judges in the military courts, the military justice system or against IDF forces. It is a severe tirade worthy of condemnation and the statements are clear.”

The “IDF is the people's army and must stay out of political debates. We do not allow inciting or offensive posts in the army and condemn them unequivocally,” the statement read.

The army “will continue to defend the country and ensure the security of the citizens of Israel.”
