Another case of abuse in the IDF emerged Sunday, this time at the Tel Nof Air Force Base, Israel Radio reported. According to the report, a soldier at the base complained to Military Police that his comrades had abused him over a lengthy period of time. Among the claims, the alleged victim said that when he showered, his fellow soldiers hurled a mixture of cleaning products, jelly and raspberry juice at him, and verbally abused him.
