Israeli Soldier Still Surprised Why Her Facebook Photos With Palestinian Prisoners Were Viewed as Offensive

A former Israeli soldier who posted photos on Facebook of herself in uniform smiling beside bound and blindfolded Palestinian prisoners said Tuesday her actions were "thoughtless." But she insisted she did not humiliate the detainees and said she was surprised the pictures were viewed as offensive.

Eden Aberjil struck a defensive tone in a pair of radio interviews, claiming that she did not do anything wrong and that similar things take place "every day" in the army, The Associated Press reports.

Jawad Amawi, director of legal affairs for the Palestinian government's prisoners ministry, told CNN, "She did this act while she was in military service, so in retrospect the Israeli occupation is responsible for her acts. This is a breach of international law, clearly a breach of human rights."

Amawi said his department will try to take legal action against the former soldier.

Israeli media reported one of the comments posted by a friend of Abergil said, "That looks really sexy for you." The photo shows Abergil smiling in front of blindfolded prisoners. She posted this response: "I wonder if he is on Facebook too -- I'll have to tag him in the photo," an apparent reference to one of the prisoners in the photo, CNN informs.
