Top Israeli police commanders dismissed in wake teen abduction fiasco

The inquiry committee appointed by Police Commissioner Yohanan Danino found a string of serious failures in the way the Judea and Samaria District Police emergency call center and the local chain of command handled the abduction of the three Israeli boys.

 

According the committee's conclusions, the operation officer at Judea and Samaria district police and the command and control officer

will be dismissed from their positions, as well as the person in charge of the 100 call center and the shift manager. They will remain in the police force.

 

The chief of the operation branch will be given a negative citation in his personal record. The committee has also found that the soldier who received the initial 911 call acted as properly. (Omri Efraim)
