Givati Brigade soldier charged with looting during Cast Lead

An IDF soldier from the Givati Brigade was charged with looting in a military court on Wednesday for allegedly stealing a Palestinian's credit card during Operation Cast Lead in the Gaza Strip earlier this year and withdrawing money at Israeli ATMs. According to the indictment, the soldier stole the credit card from the Palestinian's home in the Zeitoun neighborhood of Gaza City and used it to withdraw money following the operation. The IDF prosecutor asked the court to extend the soldier's remand until the end of legal proceedings. The court postponed its decision until a later date.
