Soldier involved in 'wedding of hate' gets 21 days in jail

Netzah Yehuda soldier failed to supervise his personal weapon, which was passed around during the now-notorious wedding; two other soldiers disciplined for using violence against Palestinian detainees.

An IDF soldier from the ultra-Orthodox Netzah Yehuda Battalion was court-martialed on Friday and sentenced to 21 days in military jail after his personal weapon was passed around between the guests at the now-notorious "wedding of hate."



IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eisenkot ordered the CID to investigate the involvement of IDF soldiers in the wedding. The investigation found that one of the weapons waved around at the event belonged to a soldier from Netzah Yehuda, who did not supervise his personal weapon, allowing it to be passed around.

Two other soldiers from the battalion, which is part of the Kfir Brigade, were disciplined after the IDF criminal investigation division (CID) found that they participated in acts of violence perpetrated against Palestinian detainees.


Kfir Brigade Commander, Col. Guy Hazut, decided to transfer one of the fighters from the battalion to another unit, while the second fighter will be suspended from his commanding role and given an administrative role instead.


Groom Yakir Ashbal was arrested this week along with right-wing activist Daniel Pinner and a minor. They were released by a court order on Thursday after police decided not to appeal the ruling.
