The Israeli military says it has disciplined two soldiers after they set ablaze a Palestinian flag in the West Bank.

The military says in a statement that Wednesday’s flag-burning contradicts “the behavioral expectations of the troops.”
The military says one soldier was jailed for 28 days. The second soldier was confined to his base for 20 days.
