The Israeli army fired two officers for deserting the battlefield

The Israeli army has decided to fire two of its officers for withdrawing from the battle with Palestinian fighters in northern Gaza, the Israeli newspaper Yediot Ahronot reported.

The company commander and his deputy withdrew from the battlefield during the ground offensive in Gaza due to a lack of fire support while facing an ambush by Palestinian resistance, the newspaper added.

"The soldiers retreated when they did not receive support, after dozens of fighters ambushed them," the text said.

The newspaper said about half of the soldiers in the force did not return to the unit after the officer was fired. The officers admitted that the forces were sent on a mission in a bad way, after engaging in another prolonged activity in the Gaza Strip without rest, the media added. This created a difficult atmosphere within the force, according to the newspaper.

"There is a crisis of confidence in the forces, but it is being dealt with appropriately by learning lessons at all levels," the Israeli newspaper quoted the military as saying.
