IDF soldiers' trophy photos routine part of ongoing dehumanisation of Palestinians

On top of revolting t-shirts celebrating their war crimes, IDF soldiers routinely took photographs of their captives bound and blindfolded as in the pictres posted by one 'soldier' on facebook.
A former Israel Defense Forces soldier has raised a storm on the internet after posting photographs of herself posing next to blindfold Palestinian prisoners on Facebook.

Photographs uploaded by Eden Abergil from Ashdod and labeled "IDF – the best time of my life" show her smiling next to Palestinian prisoners with their hands bound and their eyes covered.

"That looks really sexy for you," says a comment posted by one of Abergil's friends on the social networking site, alongside a picture or the soldier smiling in front of two blindfold men.

Israel makes second incursion into Gaza as mortars hit IDF troops

IDF is making its second incursion into Gaza, following a similar move yesterday. Today Israeli tanks fired shells near Khan Younis destroying a house - apparently the same house targeted yesterday. No casualties have been reported as yet. Mortar fire by Palestinians yesterday in response to the incursion led to the injury of two Israeli soldiers.
