Six IDF soldiers are being investigated for allegedly beating two fellow Druse soldiers on an army base in Samaria a few days ago. A Druse soldier told investigators that he was beaten all over his body while his assailants shouted racist epithets at him. The incident allegedly started over a dispute about guard duty. The soldiers were responsible for safeguarding West Bank settlements. The second Druse soldier came to the aid of the first and was also allegedly beaten. The army would not release any official information because the investigation is ongoing, but responded: "An investigation was opened. When it is concluded, the results will be passed on to the military prosecutor. The army views the discovery of any violence [between soldiers] very seriously. When the investigation concludes, the steps to be taken will be announced."
