Last year, one imprisoned Israeli soldier was exchanged for over a thousand Palestinian prisoners held for terrorism. To prevent these known terrorists to roam the streets freely again, the nation of Israel has concocted a controversial policy.
Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) have now told their soldiers that they should kill their own if they see one of them being kidnapped by opposing forces. Also, the soldiers are told to detonate one of their grenades and kill everyone around them, including their own selves, in order to prevent from being kidnapped. In the IDF's eyes, a dead soldier is better than a kidnapped soldier.
It will be interesting to see what this protocol will do to the morale of the soldiers. That extra pressure put upon them to not be kidnapped could cause some of them to snap.
