Settlers have a general in the crosshairs
So far the head of the IDF's Central Command, Maj. Gen. Nitzan Alon, has succeeded in his mission to preserve security while using the least possible violence against Palestinians. Now the settlers want him gone.
Two military objectives that the settlers did not succeed in achieving during the past year have now become important priorities. One is a change in the Israel Defense Forces’ rules of engagement, so that soldiers’ fingers can be quicker on the trigger. The second is getting rid of the officer in charge of Central Command, Maj. Gen. Nitzan Alon, who displays a certain coldness toward them.
