The IDF officer who accidentally entered Jenin on Monday and narrowly escaped a lynching was sentenced to 28 days in prison on Wednesday.
He was tried before deputy Central Command head Brig.-Gen. Motti Iloz.
OC Central Command Maj.-Gen. Gadi Shamni received the findings of a probe into the incident, which revealed that the officer had ignored safety regulations when traveling in the West Bank, resulting in his accidental foray into Jenin.
Shamni has ordered that all regulations and orders pertaining to traveling in the West Bank be updated and transmitted to officers who are stationed in Judea and Samaria.
In the Monday incident, the officer, a major, was rescued from the lynch mob by Palestinian Authority security forces. The PA security officers were subsequently condemned by Islamic Jihad, which took responsibility for the attack.
