Thought I'd get this up before Sergey appears with his slant. Even though I think they have got the size of unit worng - my guess a platoon rather than a company - I haven't heard of the Israeli's ever doing this before. An attempt by their CoC to minimise local tensions or a real change in policy and tolerance of their military actions? See here Perhaps after the last little fiasco (and helped along by US and UK experience in Iraq), there is a realisation that they can't win a "war" against a insurgent enemy. Could this be a small step along the road towards a more "hearts and minds" approach? It would be a long road to walk to build up local and international trust but I suppose it could be. We can hope.

Naaah - far more likely the sods got caught on camera and are getting hung out as the sacrificial lamb for political expediency and to stave off another kicking from the international community.
