State Department reviewing plans to sanction IDF unit

A senior U.S. official said Blinken's determination that the Netzah Yehuda Battalion committed gross violations of human rights in the West Bank has not changed, but a process of consultation with Israel on the issue is now underway to examine whether it is taking steps to address this.

The U.S. official said that if these steps are not satisfactory in accordance with the Leahy law and if it appears Israel has not held soliders and officers accountable and corrected the conditions that led to the violations, the U.S. will apply the law and withhold aid to this unit.

  1. Funny thing but up here in Canada, the government refuses to sanction the Iranian Republican Guard despite requests from multiple communities including ex-pat Iranians to do so.
