The preliminary sentencing hearing for the two Givati Brigade soldiers convicted of exceeding authority during Operation Cast Lead began at the military court in Kastina in the South on Monday.

The two soldiers were convicted three weeks ago for ordering a nine-year-old Palestinian boy to open bags they suspected might be booby-trapped found near his Gaza home.

Military prosecutors requested that the court imprison the soldiers and demote them to the ranks of privates for violation of human rights and the IDF's code of "purity of arms."
