Television reporter Oshrat Kotler faces a hearing following a complaint filed to the Press Council for her violation of their code of ethics, including the incrimination of suspects, failure to grant a right of reply, incitement and more.
Kotler will soon be facing a hearing in which the CEO of the Btsalmo organization, an organization for Jewish human rights, will demand a severe punishment for anyone who calls IDF soldiers "human animals."
This is in response to Kotler's comments on Israeli Channel 13 news in which she referred to IDF soldiers suspected of beating Palestinian detainees as "human animals."
"When you send your children to the army, they are kids," Kotler said. "You send them to the territories, and they come back as human animals. This is the result of the occupation."
Kotler's comments came in response to five IDF soldiers in the haredi (ultra-Orthodox) Netzah Yehuda Battalion who beat two Palestinians and were consequently arrested.
The coming hearing follows the complaints of more than 2,000 listeners. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu even responded to the matter, stating that he is "proud of the IDF soldiers and loves them very much."
"Oshrat Kotler's words deserve every condemnation," he said.
