Unfortunately, the reality is that they send those 18-19 yo soldiers to do work and handle civilian population with very little guidance. They are not trained to handle the civilians and do the role of a police officer. The rules seem to be flexible and the ultimate decision is in the hand of the soldier.
So what you're saying is, you'd rather see Israeli soldiers with more standard operating procedures. The problem I see as well is that the soldiers are put in position as problem solvers (ie: Law Enforcement Officers). This could be fixed with leadership stepping in.
